Call your doctor!: I am sure you were through a difficult and confusing time- you should be scared! Your symptoms don't fit an obvious concerning pattern, but your recent problems were life threatening. You need and deserve your doctor's reassurance. Also I can't understand why you got a filter if there was no clot seen outside the lungs- ask. Xarelto can be tricky, but we use it all the time. Get well soon
