I’ve been left with a blood clot that won’t go. I’m tired all the time and I’m breathless every time I try to do something

I had a persistent cough for a whole year, had chest X-rays the lot, couldn’t find any cause. It’s gone now thank goodness.

Did they tell you what to expect, never did with me

Not at first, but when i went back with concerns about this cough, the doctor said that some people have experienced the same side effects. It made me nervous because I didn't want to ignore what I thought could be a sign for me to get help. Everytime I went to the doctor they couldn't find anything wrong and my doctor said since I'm on warfin and periodically get my INR check, I shouldn't worry too much because my INR has been stable.

I had my first PE a year ago and my 2nd only 5 months ago. I still get an odd sharp pain in my chest. I put it down to my body reminding me to take it easy 😊
