I had Bariatric surgery May 9 and a week later got re-admitted to hospital with a massive PE in my lung. They never found that it started fro my leg, they presume it may have come from another source maybe in pelvic area.
I have been on Xarelto now for 6 weeks , the last CT scan showed the clot has dissolved, however now I have a nodule on my lung. I am going to a pulmonary Dr in 2 weeks. I still have shortnes of breath and have not been back to work as of yet.
Also the last echo cardiogram is showing a slight strain on the right side of my heart.
Has anyone had these type of symptoms?
The heart Dr wants me to try a cardio rehab which I am still waiitng on a okay from my insurance company.
My big question is could the PE have damaged my lung? Will my heart ever not be strained?
