Ok I don't mean to be a downer at this little party of ours, But I have a question and I'm not quite sure how to ask it. I'm 55 next month and have had 3 episodes of PE's. They finally realized I need my INR in the upper ranges of therapeutic to prevent them from reoccurring, OK I can live with that. But does having had the PE's shorten my life expectancy? As far as anyone can tell (CT scans or MRI's) I don't have any scaring in my lungs. Is having had these PE's going to ruin my chances of living to the ripe old age of 140 and becoming a burden on my children?
