    Blood clots in lungs

    Those who had blood clots in your lungs, how long till you feel better.
    I did two days of IV heparin, I'm on my 5th day of 10 days a double dose of Eliquis. Then I'll go to a regular dose. But my breathing is still real heavy and like I've run a marathon. Thanks

    I had the same problem but it went on for years. I ended up on 400 mg a Bactrim daily and it's kept them away for years. Also try silver-coated catheters

    They've done CT scans and other things on my lungs I never found them before but they are now there for sure. They did ultrasounds around the PICC line in my arm and my legs and didn't see any other blood clots. It doesn't look like I have them anywhere else but my lungs. I sure hope this is been the...

    Blood clots in lungs

    For five or six months I've had a feeling that couldn't breathe, I like it heavy chest, and I can't get enough air. I've been to probably find different specialist, every test possible, and they couldn't find the cause. I've also had pressure wound on my butt that would not heal. I just had a CAT scan...

    That should be they cultured the wound not called you the wound. I got to proofread my text-to-speech better.

    I got an MRI, and they called you the wound, I was in the hospital for a couple days. Now I am taking 6 weeks of IV antibiotics. They say they might switch the antibiotic in a few days depending on the culture. I am seeing the Infectious Disease doctor. Thanks
