I was diagnosed with a large saddle P/E in January 2015 after 2 x13 hr flights. Now on warfarin for life but my INR has been very unstable. Went on holiday 3 weeks ago which included 2 x 3 hr flights. 3 days after the outbound flight I started with a cough and chest infection as well as slight chest pain and SOB. Now, almost 3 weeks later, things don't seem to be getting any better. I can't get an appointment with my GP for 5 days, (thinking antibiotics maybe?), but I can't help worrying that I might have had another P/E. I remember being told it was unheard of to have another P/E whilst on warfarin but I am sure I have read of people who have had it happen. I do not have the DVT symptoms in the leg this time though. My last blood test was 3 1/2 weeks ago and my INR was 3.3, (supposed to be 2.5). I am due my next blood test in just under a week's time. Just don't know what to think or do!
