i am a 49 year old woman diagnosed two weeks ago with a pulmonary embolism. Unknown cause, no sign of DVT but I do work long hours and drive some distances and had been on HRT for several years, family history of mother and son having had DVT's. Docs suspect the clots had been there for some time and X-Ray shows the bottom section of my right lung has been damaged due to lack of oxygen? I have been prescribed Apixaban and advised this may be for life.
i thought it would be a quick recovery but only just found out about the lung damage? Lots of lung pain still but told this will just relate to damage caused.
I'm currently signed off work but does anyone know how long I am likely to be off in future? I'm not sure
