Im Krista from FInland and Im just 24 years old. Doctors diagnosed me PE in both of my lungs a few days ago. I spent only one night in ER and then they sent me home with Clexane two times per day for the first month. After that maybe some other medication, dont know yet.
I feel quite alone and cant find experiences of this condition on my own language. Im only gonna be off to work this week and it feels kind of weird after this serious disease.
My only symptoms were the feeling of short breath and had a little chestpain while walking my dogs. They treated this as asthma for two weeks, until one doc had idea of PE.
My clots were (or still are) quite small, but I have them on my both lungs. How long you think it's gonna take to recover? Yeah, no one can say for sure but I would like to get some experiences.
And how has PE changed your life or life plans? I dont smoke or drink, so cant even quit them.
And sorry for the language, not a native speaker here :D
