I have multiple clots on the lungs no dvt's and keep asking why and if they could be the result of some cancer in my body as I have had lots of symptoms ct scans mri scans radioactive isotope ct scans lots of contrast dye and they can't find anything but I feel so rotten have blood count thats always on the very lower end of normal I'm convinced they're missing something and these clots on my lungs only strengthen my opinions I'm at a loss as is my weight and I am disabled with m.e. so don't know why I can't put weight on ?

I had a blood clot 11 years ago when I had cancer, the radiology doctor forgot to mention that I should stay on the injections to help with the clot!!

Anyway this year I knew something wasn’t right! It turned out I had a blood clot in my right leg a DVT and a PE on my lung! But I’m now taking warfarin and getting on ok although I do get very tired.
