5 days ago · Do pulmonary embolisms put you at higher risk for COVID19 ill effects? in Lung Health

I'm feeling pretty good overall, thanks. I have continued to have the same cough which I've had for a long time, which probably freaks people out when I have to rarely go out to pick up a few groceries. My mom who I'm taking care of has stage 4 lung cancer, so we are both laying low. Thanks for the confirmation that we're doing the right thing by staying home.

Mon, Mar 16 2:37am · Do pulmonary embolisms put you at higher risk for COVID19 ill effects? in Lung Health

I was diagnosed with pulmonary embolisms last month after going through a long bout with influenza B, pneumonia (for the first time in my life), and then a cough that wouldn’t go away for months. I’m worried about covid 19 because I still feel like my lungs haven’t recovered, and I cough every night. I’m taking Zarelto and will see a pulmonologist for a follow up appointment at the end of this month to look over the echocardiogram and pulmonary functions test results. However, since he’s a critical care pulmonologist at the largest hospital in Honolulu, I’m wondering if by the end of this month things are going to be so bad here with covid 19 that he will only be working in the hospital and won’t see people with less serious conditions. Anyway, I’m concerned about what it would mean for me if I got covid 19 while also having pulmonary embolisms.
