All the deep veins in my lower right leg have clots. I believe I've had them for some time but was just diagnosed Wednesday, 5 days ago. I take Lovenox twice a day and had my first INR today, since starting coumadin. It was 3.5, so not in the desired 2.0 - 3.0 range yet. The thought of a PE scares me, as I'm sure it does most people. When is the risk pretty much gone or at least substantially lower? I know that being on coumadin and lovenox puts me in a better place than not being on them, but is the risk much lower now? Is it still too risky to do a 2 hour or 3 hour car ride? And with exercise..ie walking...should my pain or lack of pain be my guide for how much I do or should that still be limited regardless of how I feel?
