    A main verb (simple predicate) can have more than one word, yes.

    You've got the simple predicate right, but not the subject. Ask yourself: Who or what "was treated..."?

    In my lessons it explains - find the simple predicate first.
    'was treated'
    yes ask yourself the question
    Who or What was treated-

    ANSWER: venous thrombosis
    I believe you can leave out the word deep - ? that would be an adjective describing the above?

    Right.

    Are there other types of thrombosis? If there are, then keep venous. If not, then venous is an adjective, too.

    I Googles thrombosis -
    found that besides venous thrombosis there is also deep vein thrombosis-

    Answer: keep the word venous
    simple subject: venous thrombosis
