Hello all i'm new to this site! I have recently been discharged from hospital after suffering my second PE aged only 22. I will now be on rivaroxaban for life as the risk of a third one happening is too high. Obviously i've read up about the drug and know it's side effects but for me knowing i'm going to be on it forever is really quite daunting. Can anybody who is on life long anticoagulation please give me an honest opinion of what it is like? I also feel great worry over what has happened to me. I've spent the days pondering over the 'what if's'. Even now as i'm typing this the breathlessness i'm experiencing serves as a reminder Does this feeling of worry and anxiety ever go away?? Thank you.
