Be sure to discuss recovery and possible setbacks with your doctor in order to be prepared to face what can be a long and seemingly overwhelming prognosis.About a week after each VQ scan test I began to feel a swelling, tighness in the chest and anxiety coming on.Nothing about coughing up bits of dead lung or the extreme fatigue and hopelessness I feel every day.
The blood thinners do not actually dissolve the clots, but they stop new clots from forming, and they stop the current clots from getting bigger.The upper and lower branches were similarly occluded again with some blood flow around the emboli.If you have anything that causes you concern enough to wonder if something else might be going on, you are right in seeking medical attention.It is a scary time when suddenly one is faced with a serious dilema such as this.Now I have been having back issues and upper leg is bothering me.
Hi all I was diagnosed with dvt in right leg and large Pulmonary Embolisms in both lungs 6 weeks ago I have swelling in right leg which had dvt in but now my left leg has started swelling up.Maybe it was the drug treatment to break up the clot or the CPR (maybe some oxygen deprivation) but my cognitive challenges create part of my fatigue.I just feel like none of the doctors think this is a big deal, I mean they sent me home without telling me anything.It might be worth having it checked out and if the pain is worse or you are having trouble walking, please go to the ER.My left knee apparently hit the steering column, and it swelled up pretty quickly. 12 hours later, my whole lower left leg was swollen.I have extreme phobia over injections, had to meet that head on.About a week and a half later I had pain in my shoulder blade and just figured I pulled something since my job is physical.
I would be interested to know if other people have experienced this problem.I am 23 years old, my name is Kelsie and I was diagnosed with the same clotting disorder antiphosolipid syndrome when I was 15.Only the body can dissolve a blood clot and in some cases, the blood clot does not dissolve and will not dissolve.So i walked out to the ambulance, but before i got there i collapsed at the top of the driveway, i woke wondering what happened, i was worried what was going on with me.Reading posts on here is helping me so much to understand how I am feeling. Thank you.Finally one day when training my left arm swelled up instantly and was 22cm larger than my right.Drugs.com provides accurate and independent information on more than 24,000 prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines and natural products.Come to find out I have two blood clots in my leg and 10 in my lungs.
I went back to work eight days latter helping with my Hair business.The quandary I m in is the specialist said I don t want to see you back here with pains thinking you ve had another but the discharge notes said to call doc, 111 or Emergency no. for seven symptoms, four of which I ve had since leaving hospital.That was the scariest thing I had ever heard and since that night, I have lived in fear that it will happen again, though I try not to let it consume me.I sit at a desk and get up and move at least once an hour, but still am having swelling in my legs.I developed a PE in my left lung after I had surgery on my left leg because of a broken leg,the MD put me on Enoxaparin as well as Warfarinization, the internal medicine doctor said I would go back on 81mgs of aspirin once Warfarin treatment was finished,then I was transferred to a cottage hospital closer to my home,and under another general practioner.I had pain behind the knee and got checked about 6 or 7 months back.Which I did and my primary MD had to fight for my insurance to cover.I know my Pulmonary Doctor just tells me what I want to hear and said I should be off xeralto by my 6th month after tests confirm my clot is gone.
It has been two years since I suffered a DVT in my right leg and a Saddle PE in my lungs.Doctor did some tests for the cause of blood clotting and found I have GENE V LEIDEN condition.It is so important that people of all ages share their stories.
He also states that the lungs feel no pain and that my lung pain is probably not due to the PE.A hospital cardiologist came in and said I insist that you be monitored for another day or two before being released.Recovery time was never discussed, though in the beginning I was told I would probably be on the Warfarin for 3 mos.
I only used it for a few weeks and honestly it was for mental clarity.I cannot and will not answer any medical related questions beyond what I have personally experienced.I feel fine and my only issue is with the bruising from the injection site in my abdomen.Thank you to everyone for your posts above, its made me feel much better about all aspects of what we are going through.I had pain in my calves at various times before the breathing was affected.
I really enjoyed reading this down to earth and basic explanation.I was told it could be up to a year to recover. wish you the best.This can often occur during long...Did your doctor answer how long does it take to recover from a PE.
I cannot find anything to help.keep coagulating, no help with pain, lost everything. no money no ins its everything I can do to keep from suicide.
How are you now Tim, are you able to compete or train hard, how long did it take you to get back in action and to you have to take blood thinners.I felt awful, tired, often dizzy and noone told me that would happen.I had gone to my local urgent care, and was told that I had bronchitis, sinusitis, and upper respiratory infection.When they did the dapper in the hospital they could not find where the clot came from.If you do have this, you may need a thromboendodardectomy surgery, where they clear the clots out of your pulmonary arteries.I was working as a cook for 13 years so on my feet and very active but never had a problem.The easiest way to lookup drug information, identify pills, check interactions and set up your own personal medication records.I stand all day but am now lifting heavy cardboard from a stack and loading into a machine.
They got me into the ambulance as quick as poss and my mum came with me.I woke up from the fourth surgery knowing something was not right.My husband took me to the ER, where they did all the preliminary tests (chest Xray and blood work), and the doc also ran the Ddimer test.My endocrinologist, however, believes that there may be some merit to a link between thyroid and blood clotting issues.A bit of oxygen and rest and she is back to mid to high nineties.Xarelto Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details).It has been about a month now and I keep researching (probably the worst thing to do) as to when these clots will dissolve.Discussing alternatives to your treatment, including other medications may be something to bring up if you continue to struggle.
