My first PE was 2 years ago totally unprovoked. Reassured it was a one off, one of those things and after taking Rivaroxaban for 6 months get on with life and forget about it. Did all the right things joined a gym, got fit, lost weight very proud of myself. Then Oct 5th 2016 recognised a familiar pain when I was breathing in. Hospital, bloods, CT scan diagnosis second unprovoked PE. Totally floored, I'd started to believe it was a one off. That was a month ago now back on Rivaroxaban but feel total lack of confidence in myself. Does this sound familiar?
