I developed A Pulmonary Embolism back in March, only months after having my son (I'm 32), and was rushed to hospital, put on warfarin and kept in for nearly two weeks, I was taken off warfarin back in November despite not having any further scans to see if the clots had dissolved. Then last week I was rushed in again after I took ill at home, I was told the blood clots had returned, although they couldn't be sure whether they were new ones or the old ones still there. They put me on a drug called Rivaroxaban and said they would see me in three month for a further scan, and sent me home. I still feel terrible, my chest constantly hurts, my period came on very heavily, and I just feel generally unwell, All I was told was that it may be possible that I would be kept on meds for life, nobody said what I should look out for, how I should expect to feel etc.
Is it normal just to discharge someone so quickly after their second PE in under a year, I didn't feel half as ill last time and was kept in for two weeks.
