Lo and behold, ER doc ordered MUCH bloodwork. Which led to CT scan ( Her D-dimer test was elevated).
She has blood clots in her lungs!!!! Total shock to me!!
She did not complain she couldn’t breathe or any other signs. Thank God this was caught.
But, I am seeing during her hospital stay, she is so weak, O2 keeps dropping and her dementia is SO much more obvious.
Is all of this typical of lung blood clots???
This is my first experience......
