Brief Answer:
Your problems woulld be addressed

Detailed Answer:

Your medical problems with organic disorders would surely be addressed by the physicians you are consulting. Warfarin is the right choice for Pul Embolims.

However the anxiety that you experience needs your own participation. You should stop reading about your problem on Google instead search for answers with doctors when you meet them face to face. Reading aggravates the anxiety and intensifies the pain, the studies from numerous resources say that.

You should concentrate on caring your baby and breast feed her. Do not let gadgets interfere with your caregiving. Your are on top of earth by giving birth and you should take care of what god has given and only few have the chance. You should utilize that chance. People who take care of their babies are more happier and longevity is more.
