Got taken into hospital last Tues as I was very lethargic and couldn't get warm. I have had a knee operation 7 weeks ago which has gone wrong which is causing alot of pain and I'm on alot of meds.
The medics sent off lots of bloods and a CT scan revealed a blood clot in my left lung! They said I have been extremely lucky as finding this without having any symptoms is like a miracle!
I'm so tired all the time, and can sleep most of the day away! Is this normal?? When will I feel ok? Will I get more clots? I'm scared stiff!!
Many thanks Julie.

Thank you Lizzie70061, I'm just so scared! You read such horror stories!
Good luck with your recovery xx
Try not to be too scared (although anxiety is a symptom). I had two lungs full of clots a year and a half ago and today I spent all day working on car, walking dogs and generally doing stuff......so it does get better.
Sounds like they caught it early for you, so my money is on a speedy recovery for you.
All the best
My goodness Peter!! How on earth did you end up with that many??
I'm feeling so much better already after reading this! Thank you so much, you are an inspiration.
I find I'm tired all the time it most likely be from the medication. Recovery is different for everyone there are good weeks bad weeks and so on. New symptoms may occur into recovery if so go talk to your doctor about them. Take notes on your recovery go for walks and slowly increase the time.
Thanks James, I feel the more I read the more confident I'm feeling. I have been doing quite a bit more over the last few days and your body does tell you if you have overdone it.
Thanks for taking time to comment.
Hi, Canadagal I'm now starting to see how fortunate I am! And indeed yourself! Wow, 5 months seems a long rime to be unwell for, I hope you are on the mend now??
I have to have an injection of fragmin every night as the tablets they wanted to put me on wouldn't work with my arthritis tablets that I take!
Thanks for for taking time out to reply.
