My friend is in the hospital with a blood clot in her lung. She has beent she be responding to the blood thinners by now, what's going to happen now?
Should be fine!:
The second one forms a clot the body starts to break down. The blood thinners only prevent more clots from forming. The question is where did it come from. Does your friend use birth control pills? Any other risk factors need to be determined.
The clot will resolve over time and she will need to be on blood thinners for sometime.

A vena cava filter is a very good option for preventing blood clots in the legs from reaching the lungs. However, over time, vena cava filters can create problems of their own. They are better thought of as a short-term solution. If your son has clot in his legs now, and clots in his lungs as well, then it might be a good idea to place a filter to keep him from getting more lung clots. However, once he is upa and about, and on a stable dose of coumadin, (warfarin) the filter would ideally be removed.
It is much more likely that a filter can be removed if it is taken out within about 6 weeks, after that, removal may be difficult or impossible. ...Read more

Depends: While there are no specific guidelines for when to resume the exercise, it depends on the amount of clot in the lungs and the legs (clot burden), how are your symptoms, and type of exercise you are talking about. Basic idea is not to exert yourself to aggravate the lung function when the clot is fresh, and not to let the fresh clot in the leg to move to the lungs. Light exercises Ok if tolerated. ...Read more
