Serena Williams Recovering From Pulmonary Embolism: Will She Be the Same?

Serena Williams was recently hospitalized because she had a blood clot in her lungs...I think it's called a pulmonary embolism.

Anyways, people are saying that she probably won't be playing the Sony Ericsson Open set for March 22.

Do you think she'll ever be able to recover and get back in the game? Or will this medical scare prevent her from doing more with tennis?

I really love her and hope she gets better soon :)

    I am shocked to hear-about this! I am going to be optimistic and say that she will recover and be just fine. Get better soon, Serena..

    I do not know about her medical condition. However, Serena Williams is a legend and I pray she will know when it is time to lay down one racket and pick up another. She is multi-talented and very intelligent young woman and I wish her the best! God Bless!

    Serena is very athletic and a fighter and I do not see this problem keeping her out of competition.

    She should retire from the sport, go back to Compton and try to make a positive impact on that horrible area. She runs the risk of the next embolism quickly traveling to her brain and becoming an aneurism.

    If the clot dislodges-she;s dead.

    She'll be on blood thinners for awhile-does anyone even know if the clots are gone?

    They can do what's called a V-Q scan and determine whether or not it is still there.

    I know.

    They don't spontaneously disappear or dissolve. At least she was diagnosed and rec'd the appropriate help- assuming..

    here is a stat I found about it in the US..

    Outlook

    At least 100,000 cases of PE occur each year in the United States. PE is the third most common cause of death in hospitalized patients. If left untreated, about 30 percent of patients who have PE will die. Most of those who die do so within the first few hours of the event.

    The indicated treatment for a PE is a blood thinner called lovenox. I'm sure she has received her required treatment and she will probably be on blood thinners for awhile if not the rest of her life. Of course if she was taking birth control pills that is a factor in clotting as is smoking if she does that. But other than the blood thinners, I can't see any reason why she should not go back to playing tennis.

    depends on how sick she is and how her body has heeled.

    Aside from their ability to kill somebody there are no real long term affects of a PE.

    ..Except, being black, she's susceptible. PE is a racist little bastard.

    Did she subject herself to an abortion?

    That's one of the effects that happen as a result of abortion, and is most common among women who have had abortions.

    There are other reasons that this could have happened also, this is only just one of them.

    Sean BCP's Can cause young women so many dangerous health problems. A year ago we had to treat a 25 y/o for a major stroke. Smoking and BCP's can cause this. Scary

    There are contraceptive herbs women can take, like Wild Carrot, Neem, and Wild Yam. Avoid pharmaceutical drugs like the plague for anything, not just contraceptive, anything! Whenever I need medicine, herbs always.

    The girl you're talking about having a stroke at only age 25, that's a prime example right there of what pharmaceutical poisons can, and will do to a person, they're pure mad science.

    Well I am grateful that I am past all off that. However working in a doctor's office, I am surrounded by the drug pushers. LOL

    You are right though, some of the side affects are worse than the disease itself. I have to pay out of pocket for my sinus patches and hot flash tea that I get from my herbalist. I don't care it beats taking hormones and sinus medication that will send my B/P through the roof.
