Hi, after a couple of weeks of what I considered to be pneumonia...my GP sent me to hospital to be checked as he said my shortness of breath wasn't sitting right with him as I am on the combined oral contraceptive. So off I trotted for precautionary tests to rule out PE and so I could get stronger anti-biotics and today they have confirmed I have clots on both lungs.
Gutted isn't the half of it. I am 28, (female), walk 2/3 hours a day with a few sets of dogs and have never smoked! The only risk factor is the pill.
However now I am getting over the shock (I think!) and the "woe is me" and trying to think positively.
So are there any of you lovely PE survivors able to offer a newbie some advice...about what to ask the doctor tomorrow, lifestyle changes you had to make, issues you've had...anything I might find useful?
Thanks in advance!
