I was forgetting that this is the Britsh LUNG Foundation which I expect covers all things lung related. I wrote a post on the anti-coagulation site in the hope that I would have some answers but it seems that the site is not visited very often. So I thought that I would ask my friends.
In the last four years I have lost count of the number of DVTs and PEs I have had. I have had three hospital admissions (the last one, in August, for three weeks) and I don't want another one. The 'run up' to the hospital admissions is most distressing - I can cope with the aches and pains but not the feeling of being unable to breathe.
I was originally prescribed Warfarin, and was on it for quite some time. My last hospital admission showed that the Warfarin had not been working and I was prescribed Dalteparin which I inject daily.
It was suggested, by the doctors, that I have a valve implanted in my vena cava (I think) but that's on hold for the moment.
If anyone has any tips on how to avoid DVTs and ultimately PEs I would be very grateful. I know the bit about exercise.
