Venous thrombosis?: Your history suggests venous thrombosis and anticoagulants to prevent pulmonary embolism and it’s serious consequences. Please have a detailed discussion with your doctor requesting the reason for anticoagulants. If they are indeed treating for venous thrombosis, and if the diagnosis is based on reliable data,follow the advice to avoid the known complications including pulmonary embolism.
