I did wonder about that hence why I took action and went straight to the doctors. I worried about it because I had been on a 7 hour flight. I took an asprin when I started not being able to breathe for that reason.
My doctor didnt even suggest a DVT. I also did not have a problem with pain or swelling etc in my leg. Would that not have been the first symptom? If it were a DVT, am I still in danger after experiencing not being able to breathe? I did have a pain in my side overnight but I thought it was a pulled muscle from carrying heavy cases.
But my doctor said my lungs sounded clear and my oxygen levels were good. Might that negate the concern? Can you tell from listening to the lungs if there is still a problem? Sorry to bang on about this but I want all my facts completely correct before I go back to demand certain tests. I should add that I have been extremely achey around my ribs etc since.
Thank you for your advice. I will speak with my doctors again.
