HI, I have been diagnosed as having multiple bilateral small PEs and have been started on Apixaban. I have Factor V Leiden and never previously had any issue with clots. Im 52 year old female. Not overweight, and fit. Im trying to find what the recurrence rate for embolism as I have a holiday in 3 weeks that involves long coastal walks. I feel i will be fit enough to do it but feel slightly anxious as phone signal will be poor should anything happen? Do i just get on with everything as normal? I was told my follow up is seeing a chest specialist in three months
