Hello everyone. I'm three weeks post diagnosis for multiple clots from lower leg to abdomen. This is the second time I've had this. The first in same area 17 years ago due to pregnancy. I'm on apixaban and feeling very tired. Yesterday was the first day I didn't have to go for a nap. Today I'm feeling like trying to do a bit more. I've just made a meal, mainly sitting down, and am out of breath, heart pounding and sweating. I've tried to go for a walk a couple of times and maybe managed 200 - 300 metres before the same sypmtoms. Is this to be expected? I don't remember the same issues first time round.
I did go into A&E a few days after diagnosis as I felt very breathless (I also have asthma). They did CT scan and no sign of clots in the lung. I now appear to have been labelled as overly anxious, which is very annoying as I spoke with GP three times before eventual diagnosis at A&E and was told each time it to worry it wasn't a clot.
I've no planned follow up until end of July with hematologist, so any experiences of recovery time from DVT would be welcomed. I'm due back at work on Tuesday after a month off but not sure how I will cope. Thanks.
