Knowing that you are not alone, can make such a difference. Understanding what others have experienced and things that have helped – or challenged, along the way.

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.

My experience of my DVT/PE - Fern's Story

In 2015 Fern gave birth by c-section, in what she was led to believe to be a ‘textbook delivery and recovery’, so when she developed pain she presumed it was just a pulled muscle.

Megan's Story

Megan's thrombosis journey began shortly after starting chemotherapy treatment for a rare tumor on her hand.

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.
