Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question.
In case of PE in a young person we have to check legs for clots with use of doppler ultrasound
and then we have to screen to clotting factor disorders like
factor V laeden, protein C and S deficiency.
These are mandatory test to make sure this does not happen again.
No this is not true,,, We do not screen if a person has a DVT and it is only a single episode but we need screening in case of PE
whether first episode of second
because it is a life threatening problem and needs clotting tests
You should consult a hematologist
he will tell you exactly what i have told.
You have questions ?
Your GP or medical specialist can refer you
In UK is is very difficult to see a hematologist directly
Then only option is a private visit
For PE embolism it is clas 1 recommendation to check for clotting problem.
I am afraid so..
You are welcome....
Have a nice day.
