Detailed Answer:
Hi Akshata
Welcome for the follow up.

I have evaluated your attached x-ray of the chest.
The blood report is not worth readable.

So far as the x-ray is concerned, it seems okay.

Currently for the bleeding concern, you can get medications as tranexamic acid from your doctor and later definite evaluation guidelines can be figured out after analysis of available blood report.

Thanks.
