    Did the Doctor & Pharmacist give you blood thinners and send you on your way?

    Did they provide you with an aftercare/ lifestyle adjustment program, aftercare monitoring & further investigations?

    Do you know the cause of your PE?

      Keep looking online, take time off work

      None of the Doctors, Pharmacists and Policy makers in UK re: PE/DVT. know what it's like to be almost dying with a clot lodged somewhere between your heart and lungs.

      They know about stress & anxiety driving free NHS breast, buttock, lypo, Botox enlargement/reduction planning, scans and things

    Hi Natasha,

    Sorry to hear about your troubles.

    Since you have been diagnosed so recently, I think it would be prudent to get checked out. There is a good chance it is nothing to worry about, but I was told ""any concerns, come and see us"" by the people in A&E.

    It is all a bit scary initially, but it does get better. Let us know how you get on.

    All the best
