Re: Blood clots

Hope mine dissolve soon! I’m really breathless because of them, but strangely comforted that it is the clots and not the disease..

On the plus side I’m getting lots of sewing and knitting done!

Re: Blood clots

Hi Jayne, yes I had blood clots recently, I am on Capecitabine, I was totally out of breath all the time, couldn't get up the stairs at all. lung x ray showed possible clots on lungs, ct confirmed it. I was on the injections for 10 days then they did another ct and they had dissolved.

Blood clots

I had a CT scan 2 weeks ago that identified blood clots in my lungs. I was also suffering a chest infection that has now cleared up after a IV antibiotics.  I’m home now and giving myself daily Fragmin injections. I’m told that my breathlessness is from the existing clots, which will take some time to be reabsorbed by my body- possibly 3-6 months!

I’m now on oxygen at home because of this.

Does anyone else have experienced of clots and how long did they take to resolve?
