This is my second bilateral PE. The first time I only had shortness of breath. This time I was short of breath for the last 2-1/2 months. Both Cardiologist and Pulmonologist missed it. Until I doubled over in pain last Wednesday and could not breathe. I was in the hospital 5 days and just got out last Sunday afternoon. Have to admit, I did a little more today than I have been. I was advised to "take it easy" and that it can take 4-6 weeks to resolve. But tonight the pain is back. Not as bad, but there.
