Hi, I am a newbie here, so hello and thank you beforehand for all your help and advice. Its only been 7 weeks when I was diagnosed with three very large clots in my lungs that were sitting behind my heart. They were too big to thrombolysis' and yet the pressure on my heart could make me have a fatal heart attack. I am 46 and a single mother, and have never lost a day from work before this. I was in hospital for 2weeks then, left to my own devices really. I am on medication for life as there was no known reason for the clots, I have been to the GP twice who has recommended that I return to work this week, although no-one has checked me over, not even my blood pressure. I am also trying very hard to give up smoking. I fell about a week ago, flat on my face and although my recovery before that was going well, I feel that I have been having pain in different parts of my body - not sure if its paranoia, the effects of no smoking, anxiety or if their is something more. I do feel that when I left the hospital, as glad as I was, that I was left on my own - I didn't expect to be left feeling quite so alone after being given a fifty fifty chance of life a few weeks prior.
Thankyou for letting me let off some steam and maybe somebody has been through something similar so that I don't feel completely off my rocker!
