Hello! I am new here. I was diagnosed with an unprovoked PE in November 2018 and have been on apixaban since. My hematologists is likely to recommend lifelong anticoagulation due to being unprovoked. I have seen that some people are rated at 30% and some at 60% for similar issues. The 60% rating states: "Chronic pulmonary thromboembolism requiring anticoagulant therapy, or; following inferior vena cava surgery without evidence of pulmonary hypertension or right ventricular dysfunction" while the 30% rating states: "Symptomatic, following resolution of acute pulmonary embolism." I have only had one episode of PE but that is enough for the doctor to recommend anticoagulation for life, she said it is the industry standard for unprovoked because the risk of having another is 50%. My question, would I more than likely be rated at 60% than 30% due to the lifelong anticoagulation even though I didn't have more than one episode? I did, however, have more than one PE in the same lung lobe. Any help here is greatly appreciated.
