Could 5 Days Of Clexane 150mg Clear Small Blood Clot On Lungs
No: Clexane does not clear existing blood clots, the body does. Clexane prevents new clots from forming. Treatment of blood clots, once they have formed, should be no less than three months. Clexane is often used as an overlap with another blood thinner coumadin (warfarin). Once the Coumadin (warfarin) is working clexane can be stopped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
I am on clexane injections since the doctors found a blood clot on my lung last week can i still have my tattoo ive booked a few weeks ago?
Not a good idea: It’s truly best not to. The fact is you *will* bleed more receiving the tattoo. Your doctor won’t want you to get it, and a reputable tattoo parlor won’t want to give it to you. And the reason is that it’s not in your best health interest. The timing with the clot just did not work out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Other diagnosis: After a pe a month ago, you should still be on xarelto so still protected. The incidence of DVT originating from the upper extremity is very low. Other diagnosis has to be sought. Only question is why did you have a clot in your lung at your age? ...Read more

On top of having peurisy I also have a small blood clot in my lung. Will that go away on its own? The dr seemed concerned but not enough to surgery
Yes it will go away: over time, your body's version of "garbage men", macrophages, will go and literally eat up the bits of clot. This is assuming you are on an anticoagulant. the process of clearing out the blocked artery takes 3-6 months for most people, and for a few as long as a year. Your inflammatory isuues will need to be controled as this increases clotting. Most likely the clot is the cause of your pleurisy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood oxygen is 95-97%, 2 negative d dimers in dec. And a clear chest xray but feel some shortness of breath at times, blood clot in lungs or anxiety?

Unless you have other significant risk factors for abnormal blood clotting, i would not believe you are having pes. ...Read more
