Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
You probably are having pulmonary thromboembolism and pulmonary hypertension which can be treated after finding out the cause if any. You will require blood thinning medicine and medicines to control PHTN. Be under regular follow up for the same with your doctor.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query.
Wish you good health. Thanks.
