8 weeks after an operation I started to experience shortness of breath whenever i tried to do anything. The GP sent me to A and E. My blood oxygen was anything from 92 to78 and after an x-ray, scan and ECG were all clear my levels were staying around 79 to 81. I was then taken to the ICCU for 3 days. I didn't feel ill but the doctors were telling me I was very ill. They stabilised me and sent me to the ward still on oxygen. I was told that the symptoms showed a PE but all the tests were clear. I was treated for PE and things started to clear after 12 days in hospital I was sent home on blood thinners and told I would need to go to the respiratory clinic for check ups. Now I'm feeling vulnerable other than the shortness of breath I had no other symptoms that I knew of. I'm scared it will come back. I'm not sleeping very well.
