Pneumonia After Surgery Symptoms
I had a PE last year due to having two abdominal surgeries. Im getting sick with pneumonia/cold type symptoms. could it cause a PE?
UR higher risks of P: The respiratory illness is not likely to directly cause a PE, but you are higher risk. The immobility and changes in blood clotting after surgery are high risk factors, but you have shown you can get a PE.

69 Y.O. male, rotater cuff surgery 8/14.Had sepsis, pneumonia, abscessed tooth after. He's planning on torn meniscus surgery 9/11. Wise choice?
