Hi my name is Lulama Ngobeza I have been on warfarin since August 2016. When I was admitted it was because of the Pulmonary Embolism and also discovered that I have anti phospholipid syndrome and was diagnosed with Lupus. My target is 2-3 but I am struggling to get there. Sometimes the blood is too thin and sometimes too thick. When I asked the doctor how long will I be on warfarin she said for life. I am not sure what to eat anymore because my blood keeps on getting thicker but have stayed away from the greens the whole of last week.
The other problem I have is the neck and hip pain as well it comes and goes and if I excercise at least the pain is not so much. I am also on other meds like plasmoquine, calciferol and Azathioprine (Imuran) and I drink them in the morning after breakfast so that they dont interfere with the warfarin. Thank you for this platform we'll really appreciate your advise and suggestions.
