Pulmonary Emboli - PhillieG

Other Care Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on October 21, 2013 View this journey (26 Experiences)

When I was having my 2 month CT scan and the tech noticed I had a pulmonary emboli. I've been on a blood thinner for the past month and it's helping a lot. When we went over the scan we saw that the inflammation that I have in my lung decreased by about 60% so the inhaler is working. Overall I'm feeling OK but I am short of breath still.
