About 4 weeks ago or so I had some pain in my right calf. I thought I pulled a muscle but after about 5 days it was gone. The following week I had pain in my left calf. So I thought it was maybe my shoes. It never went away and after googling my symptoms and doing the “tests” I didn’t think I had dvt. It felt like a mild sprain that was it! Well 2 nights ago I went to just have it checked because I was sick of the sprained feeling. I had an ultra sound of my left leg, then a CT of my chest. Then another ultra sound of my right leg. Turned out my left leg had a clot from my ankle into my buttocks, the nurse said it was the largest she ever saw! I also had a small one in my right calf. The CT showed I had 3 PE’s. I was put on a heparin (I think) IV. The next day ( last night) I was released! I was given Eliquis to take twice daily. I’m kinda of surprised I am out and home. I feel kind of worried being filled with all these clots. Next week I have an appointment with a lung doctor. She has also already scheduled me a PET scan next week. I just don’t know what to do next, feeling lost.
