I'm getting very concerned. I had a bilateral massive PE almost 2.5 years ago. Since then, I don't seem to be very healthy. For example, I was sick this entire last summer for about 2.5 months with asthma/bronchitis and right now I've been sick for a month with this terrible bronchitis. It doesn't seem to ever go away in any timely manner despite the use of steroids, multiple inhalers, antibiotics, etc. This is getting very frustrating and frightening to me because I've never had respiratory problems like this in the past. It makes me think that there is scar tissue in my lungs, making it hard for me to heal from any respiratory illness. Every time I mention this to a doctor, I don't think they think this is a probability and I am unsure how to manage all of this. Any thoughts on what direction I should go?
