In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the concern this has caused to many people with a history of blood clots, we would welcome hearing from individuals who have made a good recovery from Covid-19 but who either had a blood clot as a result of being severely ill and hospitalised due to Covid-19, or who have a medical history of thrombosis, developed Covid-19 and made a good recovery. If you were willing to share your experience it would be extremely reassuring for others with a medical history of thrombosis. Thank you.

Throughout the pregnancy I had really suffered with shortness of breath
