Yikes

I should just blindly follow my doctors without reading anything.

About half of the people with untreated pulmonary embolism will have another embolism. As many as half of these recurrences may be fatal. Anticoagulant treatment can reduce the rate of recurrence to about 1 in 20 people; only about 1 in 5 of these people will die of pulmonary embolism.

Thank God I got treatment! :)
