May be something new: If your symptoms were checked to rule out a clot in the legs or lung and no other surgical problem is seen, there may be another issue to work out. Suggest seeing your pcp and start a work up for sob (shortness of breath). High blood pressure, heart conditions and lung conditions are some of the possible causes. If you feel severely short of breath at any time, return to the er!
