Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I had a dvt and pe within 4 months of a previous one. I was on warfarin and within therapeutic range when I had my last pe. I was put on Arixtra and almost immediately I gained about 20 pounds around my waist. My waist size went from 32 inches to 36 inches within a matter of a few months. I have tried exercise and dieting to no avail. I also have asthma and with the lung damage from numerous PE's it is difficult to do strenuous workouts.
