This is my first time posting--I had multiple bi-lateral pe's back in December. I was in the hospital for 4 days and am now on Coumadin. I am also recovering from major spinal surgery (Nov. 08). I am back to work, walking several miles a day, and generally functioning. I browsed some of the other threads and found that the shortness of breath is common but I am wondering if the lingering pain in the calf is normal. The pain that sent me to the ER in the first place, was in the left calf and it was exploding--like a charlie horse, only worse. That pain is gone--but what is left is muscle spasm type pain, like a bubbling sensation. It has been 6 weeks, so I am wondering if this calf pain is typical. I do have the DVT in the calf. On top of all this--I am on Oxycontin 20mg twice a day for the back surgery recovery pain--so that med is probably masking the calf pain quite a bit (so I am sure the pain is even worse than I think). Normal? It is SO HARD to get answers from the doctors.

I'm freaking out. I was bending down to get something from the freezer, and bumped my head a little against the back of my water filter. I've had worse head bumps before, and this wasn't bad, but it hurt a little. Should I be worried about internal bleeding?!On eliquis 5 MG, next dose in two hours.
