    I am a high risk pregnancy due to a clotting disorder associated with an auto immune condition. I have been on blood thinning injections every day since before baby conceived.

    A PE is definitely a medical emergency, & i would expect your friend would have spent time in hospital - or even still be there - while waiting for medication levels to stabilise.

    I had a DVT when i was 23 - clot in the leg - which was so big and carried such high risk of breaking off and causing a PE, there was very real discussion about amputation of my leg as a preventative measure. I spent 2 and a half weeks as an inpatient stabilizing my drug levels before docs were happy to let me go (with both my legs)

    Your friend needs to discuss pain relief options with her doctors, & not be afraid to ask for help with her other children.
