Hi All, I am now almost 12 months post PE, and off blood thinners and still have my reversable greennfield filter in. My first doctor told me to have it checked before the year was out and to have it taken out, as he said the filter itself can cause clotting (shhheeeeshh). I just went to my regular doctor who insists it should stay in for life. They both disagree and it's driving me nuts! I want it out if I don't need it and it could be risky. Any thoughts?
