CT Scan

Posted , 3 users are following.

Finally got the all clear from all tests conformed now on the original dvt and also the PE in each lung. Problem I have now is the CT scan picked up an 8mm left upper lobe sub-solid nodule. Has anyone else had this discovered after suffering PE's and is there a link between the two?

    Do you get to come off of your blood thinners?

    I had the DVT and OR in each lung and my CT scan, at 5 months, showed everything gone but there was a tiny nodule left. But my doctor's said that it could be scar tissue as it was the same as the scan at 3 months.

    Thank you both for the replies Sam and Maria. I'm still to see the specialist or my doctor regards coming off the coagulants and thanks for the info regards the scar tissue that would be a relief if mines the same. Hope to know more on all fronts after my next appointment.

    I had intended to say that I had the DVT and two PEs in my lungs but my new keyboard that is supposed to correct everything has a mind of its own!
