Thank you for the information.

This will depend on a few factors.

Size, site of the clot are important.

If it is large or if it blocks a large branch, then the condition can be serious.

The preexisting lung condition also affect the outcome.

If it is small in size & affects a small vessel, it may even get unrecognized & prognosis is better.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
