In brief: Depend on severity

You have severe pulmonary hypertension.
Many causes, but by your history probably due to pulmonary embolism. Can be idiopathic, due to left heart disease, lung disease, thromboembolic disease and multifactorial. Treatment include oxygen, anticiagulation, diuretics, ca blockers, phosphodiesterase inhibitors, inhaled nitric oxide, prostacyclin. Talk to your doctor, if severe, surgery is an option.
