Topic: Pulmonary Embolism
Well, after complaining of shortness of breath which continued for quite a few days, My Doc ordered a CT pulmonary angiogram "just to be safe". My pulse ox was in the high nineties (breathing hard wil do that) and my lungs were clear. Despite that I have, in the words of the pulmonary guy, a pretty impressive Scan, with many clots in both lungs. Then today I was dopplered and found to have a DVT. yippee skippee. So, in the hospital on heparin drip, oxygen and started on Coumadin. remember that song Happy happy joy joy? and I do mean that facetiously!
