    I had this. PE Hospitalized for 5 days. Lovanox shots in stomach. Clots went to my lungs. I take Warfarin every day and will for the rest of my life. But God, the events that saved my life could only have happened because of God. Normally clots go from lungs to your heart, then, of course, death. Main symptoms: Leg cramps, shortness of breath. Get checked. I was told by Dr, God just wasn’t ready for me to come yet. I knew God had more for me to do. I just give Thanks and Praise to God.

    DVT kills! Don’t play around with this very serious condition! Always wear compression stockings if you are flying over long periods of time! Interstate/overseas travellers take note. If you or someone you know is susceptible to any type of thrombosis then it is vital that you see your medical professional immediately! In the case of thrombosis don’t listen to the “bush remedies”, take your case to your doctor! It WILL save your life!

  10. Treatment could be blood thinners, compression stockings….if you think you or someone else has DVT then you need to see your physician.
