My wife went to A&E one month ago today and was diagnosed with both a bilateral saddle pe and a dvt in her left leg. She spent 2 weeks in hospital & has been on once daily Heparin injections (Clexane) ever since. She has a hospital appointment this week re going on oral tablet (warfarin) treatment. This is her 2nd pe after having one 6 years ago and she was thrombolised back then. I'm due to return to work on Monday morning. We have a 4 month old daughter at home. My main concern is regarding if she is now stable? Is it safe for me to leave her and return to work? Should the clots in the lungs and dvt started to dissolve and/or formed this protective coat over them. I've read that after a month the clots should have hardened and now unlikely to travel?? Any advice is very much appreciated. Very anxious husband and father
