Blood clot

My brother has blood clot in leg and around intestines. We got to know about it when he consulted his Dr. for swelling in leg. Dr said his leg veins have got so sensitive that it's breaking even just by pressing that area by fingure. We consulted with other Dr. and he said he has to get injected to remove this clot. It can cause bleeding. Is there any other way to rid of this problem.
