Hi Sheila!
I know it is really scary. Usually most patients who develop blood clots (as embolisms—or clots which came from elsewhere) in lung, brain or heart have blood clots in deep veins of the legs. These clots break and travel to distant organs. Usually patient is kept on blood thinners for life. The dose needs constant monitoring through INR or PT test. The patient has to take care to avoid injury as any injury can cause severe bruising due to blood thinners. You can jot down a list of questions and ask your doctor when he comes for rounds or before discharge. Keep jotting questions as they come in your mind so that you do not miss anything when you are with the doctor. Wishing your husband a speedy recovery! Take care!
