I haven't had this, but I too have heard about
us being more prone to it. My Grandfather died from a pulmonary embolism (his was from prostate surgery though), so it freaks me out. I'm also on birth control pills. I have terrible periods, migraines, cramping, ovarian cysts ect... so I don't want to go off of them. But can't help but worry about
such a thing.
How did you know you were having them? Were you short of breath, coughing or anything? Is your Crohn's flaring up? I've heard it's more common when we're in a flare. So scary, I'm glad your home and doing better!
