Self repair: The vast majority of people's bodies remove the clot and repair the damage themselves if their inr is kept in the therapeutic range. By three months most patients feel normal and testing will show no clot and no heart strain. Rarely, people do not remove the clot and need further intervention - see your lung doctor about your case!
