Cobdition of Dvt's and PE'S
WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM SOME PEOPLE
I BE INTERESTED IN HEARING SOMEONE TOO
I have factor 5 leiden diagnosed 12 years ago i have been on and thrown pulmonary emboli's on comaudin, lovenox and now i am on 12.5 mg arixtra sub q still getting pe's which are all in stu which means they are forming in my lungs and not as dvt's in my legs mine is a very unusual case and complicated by having multi organ involved lupus I do not however carry an antibody that you can have wth lupus that can cause blood clotting. I do have a filter in place just as extra protection. very frustrating and scary have had over 2 dozen pe's I have had several embolectomys and tpa. I woulld lke to respond to PIGLIT if you have had and have been developing dvt's and pe's(on comaudin) you need to go to another med such as lovenox you need to talk with your doc i am suprised or rather shocked that it has not been done. This is nothing to fool around with. there have been some new drugs that have come out that are called light weight heprins and there is no need for constant ptinr blood testing.
