I'm a relatively fit 46-year-old male who had a straddled submassive PE in April, with no known cause. Thankfully the medical team used catheter-directed thrombolysis to dissolve the clots almost completely over a 24 hour period.
Since leaving the hospital, I've had a tightness in my throat and a slight pain in my right lung. Nothing debilitating, just discomfort. However, it's gotten slightly worse over the past few days. I've been to my consultant and had a chest x-ray, which was fine. I've been told to take paracetamol and wait for the problem to pass, which isn't what I was hoping to hear!
If anyone has had a similar experience, I'd love to hear your story and what you discovered.
