Vicodin Pulmonary Embolism Causes and Reviews


A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung. Pulmonary embolism is a serious condition that can cause

  • Permanent damage to the affected lung
  • Low oxygen levels in your blood
  • Damage to other organs in your body from not getting enough oxygen

If a clot is large, or if there are many clots, pulmonary embolism can cause death.

Half the people who have pulmonary embolism have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include shortness of breath, chest pain or coughing up blood. Symptoms of a blood clot include warmth, swelling, pain, tenderness and redness of the leg. The goal of treatment is to break up clots and help keep other clots from forming.

Vicodin Pulmonary Embolism Reviews

Wed, 26 Jan 2011

I have cramps after 2 months of taking Vicodin. Do you think it is from the medication? I only take 1/2 of a pill twice a day.

thanks, Marie

Sun, 11 Apr 2010
I don't have a question, more like a statement to add to the Vicodone side effects. I had surgery on my lower back-I weigh 163 lbs/57' tall. A few days after my surgery I ended up with severe distention where I looked 6 months pregnant all the way from under my diaphragm to my lower abdomen. I could not fit into anything but the loosest yoga pants that I own The surgeon said he had no idea what caused it- I finally had to go to the ER to get this resolved. they had taken X-rays the Dr. on call there said it was a reaction to the Vicodone where I ended up with "lazy gut" as he referred to it. They had had patients come in with this before, so he knew recommended suppositories to handle the issue. Its been slowly going down, but it has been almost a month. I would not recommend this drug for pain management after surgery -Ever! -L
