Our expert says:
The danger is that there may still be small clots that can loosen and cause serious pulmonal embolism which could cause you to end up in intensive care - but I would suggest that you re-do the D dimer test to see if this is still elevated and discuss with your doctor (GP) to put you on a short course of anti-coagulants to prevent any further clotting.
