Chest Pain And Pulmonary Embolism

inside out Says:

Is anyone still suffering regular chest pain 10 months on from a pulmonary embolism? Mine was a very large unprovoked saddle PE. I am on xarelto 20mg. Can lungs be permanently damaged from a PE?

Your lungs can be permanently damaged, but a cat scan would be able to give you the answer I too had to blood clots one on each lung and some how escaped completely un harmed I'm currently on warfain for the past 4yrs and have had no problems what so ever from the looks of all these posts I think I will keep it that way.

I had a severe saddle PE in July of 2008 and had chest pain for about 18 months after. My docs all thought it was chostochondritis and looking back I do believe that was what it was. The pain can be caused from the minute movements the clot caused on your cartilage in your chest. Mine eventually faded but I had many ER visits because of it. I just had another PE a few weeks ago and no chest pain this time so I am feeling very thankful because I do remember how bad it was. I hope yours has gotten better since you originally posted.
