Hi i am Suffering from Acute Pulmonary embolism with Deep veins thrombosis. On PRADAXA 150 MG AND homochek from last 20 days after discharge. Current oxygen saturation level measured from oximeter are: After 5-10 mins of brisk walk- 86-87% Rises slowly when I sit after the walk. Does not cross 93-94% What inference can be made from this? I am suffering from breathlessness from past 45 days and still it is there specially when I climb stairs or walk for some time or do some exertion. Is it a very slow recovery? Or is it normal? Any valuable suggestions/precautions from you people will be highly appreciated.
