In addition to having COPD I have been diagnosed for the second time with multiple small pulmonary embolisms. The first time I was admitted to hospital as they were acute, this time I was told they are sub acute. I did not want to be on Warfarin again as my INR level never stabilised before and I was having 1 or 2 blood tests a week.
I was shocked and disappointed as I have had to cancel my holiday to Arizona next week. Even before this my mood was low and is now even lower. In fact I am feeling worried and depressed.
This time I have been prescribed Apixaban. Does anyone else have experience of this drug and advice about how to avoid future PEs Thank you in advance.
