Hi, I was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolisms in December 2017. The doctors believe it was due to the oral birth control I was on. I was on Xarelto for 6 months and was tested for a lupus anticoagulant disorder, which came back negative. However, I did not have another d-Dimer blood test done to check my clotting levels.. should I have had that done to determine if I still possibly have blood clots? I have been having chest pains again and a fast heart rate. I had chest pains everyday on Xarelto as well including before I was diagnosed.
Should I ask about getting a d-Dimer blood test done again to check my clotting levels? Is it possible to still have blood clots and/or develop new ones within 2 months? I stopped the Xarelto in June.
