Has anyone out there had their clots originate from the pelvic region? What tests were done to find the clots? I have already had the chest CT's to confirm 3 PE's, My ultrasounds of my legs and arms have come back negative for DVT's, My blood tests for V Leiden, and the Lupus Anticoagulant have all come back negative. I am scheduled for an enhanced ct scan of my pelvic region sometime later this week, and then after my hubby gets through his back surgery I will be scheduled for a colonoscopy, to check for colon cancer. Any other suggestions on what tests I should undergo to discover the cause of my mysteriously appearing PE's? By the way for the colonoscopy I have to go off my Coumadin for 5 days and be on the lovenox shots up to the day before the procedure, then it's back on both Coumadin and lovenox until I'm therapeutic once again. Like I said any suggestions is appreciated as my physician and I are running out of places to look and i personally don't believe in magically appearing PE's.
