How long til blood clots go away?
I need to vent. I started cleaning my step dads office again today. I used to do it every other Friday before the PE and I just started it back up today. I got there before his secretary left and she said well your clots are for sure gone by now. I was sitting down after I had been cleaning for a while because I had some chest pain. I said well I am only out about 10 weeks out and I don't think they are gone cause I still have severe chest pain. She quickly said well my mom had clots all the time and she just took coumadin and in a few weeks her clots were gone so yours were gone a long time ago. She was very rude and acted like I was making this all up. She had been complaining to my step dad that she had to be doing my work of cleaning while I was gone and that prompted my step dad to call Mayo clinic to find out about Pulmonary Embolisms because she had been telling him I should be perfectly fine by now. Mayo clinic did say exercise is good for me and that cleaning his office would be good so he said I needed to come back. I guess Mayo is right but she was like see I told you she was fine. Now my mom is even saying I should be fine by now and I shouldn't need pain pills anymore and that I must be addicted. I am going through hell and for sure need to call my hematologist to talk to him about all this. SO what do you all think? How long does it take for PE's to disintegrate? My family is not helping me and I need people that understand what I'm going through. Am I crazy for having chest pain still? Please help. Thanks

I'm having a hard time coping with being placed on blood thinners for life, and also the extreme fatigue I'm feeling. I missed a...
Around mid to late January I was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism, had a low calcium level and an inflamed pancreas. Sometime after being released from the hospital, it became apparent I was having serious issues with memory and fatigue. Although I have slowly gotten better the memory impairment continues and I have issues with being out of breath and major sleeping issues. I usually can't...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
