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.

Carly's Story

My PE was confirmed on 1 May 2018, by which point I was experiencing severe shortness in breath and pain in my chest and upper back. As a result I was struggling to walk more than a few steps at a time.

Rachels story

I was studying at my secondary school in my final year getting ready to do my G.C.S.Es. In the October of 2017. I began to get more and more breathless, I was slowly getting worse, visiting doctors every few weeks to try and get an answer.

PhD, Pandemic and Pulmonary Embolism

My name is Benita Percival, I am 26 years old and I am a scientist at DeMontfort University, Leicester. After submitting my PhD thesis, I was ready to undertake my viva voce on the 18th March 2020. I am a netball player and play with two awesome teams, Blaby Netball Club and Turner’s Tornadoes. Never for a second, did I think for I would have any medical problems having been active and healthy all my life.

How two DVTs changed my life physically and mentally

I was 16 at the time so just starting my GCSE’s. One Morning I woke up for school, and my left leg felt very strange and sore, so I got out of bed and tried to put weight on it which made me feel even worse. I tried to carry on as normal thinking that I may have twisted or sprained it in the night.
