I was diagnosed 4 weeks ago, with bi-lateral PE. My GP was wonderful and sent me immediately to my local hospitals Clinical Decisions Unit where I was diagnosed within 3 hours. This diagnosis has affected me both physically and emotionally but I am being positive and would appreciate any advice from those further down their own road to recovery. I was physically very active and wonder how others have progressed or possibly returned to there pre- PE state, and over what time period. I am taking Warfarin and drinking over 2L water per day to remain hydrated (dehydration plus other factors possible cause of PE).
