had a baby boy on 7-18-09 by cesarean, had a rough bed rest pregnancy etc... well last Friday went to ER with weird chest pain and back pain, low and behold the doc did a CT scan and I have PE with infarction (clots in each lung). Of course I am scared beyond belief as I just had a baby and they tell me this and then admit me to hospital..so I am put on Heparin then the next day Lovenox and Coumadin and dischagred a few days later..well now I am home trying to recoop and going to the clinic every day for bloodtests to check INR levels which are still not theraputic but should be tomorrow, anyway I have questions..when do these clots dissolve if ever? will I ever stopped being paranoid about dying or this happening again??? will I be able to go back to normal living? they think this was caused by my cesearean and bed rest etc but will do further testing. Im just really scared and paranoid and want to go back to normal and be able to take care of my baby.
