Car doing well.

Not a biggie, but I have a phobia about needles.

My warfarin levels are back within range, so no daily injections for me....for now \:D/

I take warfarin tablets daily, and they try to keep my INR levels between 2 and 3. However, if it drops below 2, my blood clot risk increases, and I need two injections of Clexane daily. There are newer drugs that do the same job, but with warfarin if you're in a crash, or have an accident with a power tool, etc, they can give you an antidote to make your blood clot. With the newer drugs, if you're cut or have a bad bleed, its harder for them to get your blood to clot again. Did they give your mom a test to make sure it was safe to stop warfarin?

I am sorry to hear that you have such a challenging condition.
I was surprised they stopped my moms warfarin but I wasnt there and she in the nicest possible way was useless at asking why or explaining stuff.I just got the impression it was a cost cutting exercise and may have been due to her age.Anyway to be positive she never had another stroke for years after they stopped it and died from cancer very quickly.
I will hope you dont need injections.I dont think anyone likes them and the more you have the less you like them.
So I wish you good health or at least no injections.all the best

Making me smile that this 'good news' thread is all doom and gloom lol. The positive side is, although I'm on warfarin for probably the rest of my life, the blood clot I suffered is now classed as 'unexplained'. I was CT scanned looking for cancers, then they found a cyst on my kidney, so more scans, and an ultra sound. The cyst turned out to be a 'simple cyst', and benign. But all that took best part of a year, so was hard work trying put it all out of my head while it was happening. So now am on the up, I can use my leg again, and more importantly can work on cars too. It's a right pain when you can't bend your leg at the knee.

I noticed the irony of the thtead too I laughed that I used the phrase the good news is mom died of cancer.
Glad you have sorted a lot of health issues out.

Fly the rooms with fly spray when you go in and out and try and find something with a pine smell as a repellant.I use avon skin so soft an army trick but a spanish guy said they carry pino leaves in their pockets which I think is pine.
I used to blow up like a balloon but both work for me .
The chemist stuff is rubbish.
