New to Warfarin and watching my vitamin K
Darlene Heimy wrote about 1 year ago
Currently, I am in A Flutter. CHF, Blood clots, Stenosis of my mitral valve [tissue pig valve that failed] and many more health issues. May 9, 2019, I was hospitalized. The Cardiologist on staff thought I had blood clots causing my mitral valve to narrow. I was put on a Warfarin drip. I am a "complex and complicated case". Right now the pro time clinic is trying to get my blood levels with Warfarin between a certain number. Therefore, a surgeon can do an ablation, then a 2nd open heart surgeon to replace my mitral valve with a mechanical valve. I don't know which valve is the longest lasting one. I know how hard the first surgery was. I said "NEVER AGAIN' will I go through another open heart surgery. I have hope that this internet site will help me keep a normal blood flow by keeping low vitamin K foods, and to be healthier. Cardiologists are working to put me on a Tracker. I am half way there.
