  1. How long should one continue taking coumadin after a pulmonary embolism?

  2. good one.

  3. How long after a pulmonary embolus (2 small subsegmental) can a patient have general surgery for underlying cancer of the ovary ?

    • Sorry, can’t give out specific medical advice on this blog. Generally speaking, small subsegmental PEs without hemodynamic compromise should not be a contraindication to a necessary surgery (other than the anticoagulation). Recommend pulmonary consultation. All the best to you. -Matt
