Hi Veronica: My name is Ed & here is my story, On July 9/20 my doctor told me to go to ER at the hospital with shortness of breath & chest pains. after 8 hrs & full assessment, Covid-19 test, chest X-ray , blood tests, ECG, & CT Scan The doctor told me I had a blood clot in my lung . They admitted me to isolation until the Covid -19 test results come back . I spent the next seven days in hospital hooked up to IV of heparin for 2 days, vitals 4 times a day, blood work twice a day, from day 3 to day 7 injections twice in the belly, put me on warfarin & covid-19 test results were negative and two more ultra sounds on legs and chest, doctors told me I would be on warfarin 8 mg a day for the 3 to 6 months because of the P.E. and I would have to adjusted my life style. Released from hospital on July 15/20 with INR level 2.2 and thanks to this site I am learning to keep my vitamin. K with in 90 mcg. a day. My first blood test tomorrow see if the INR is between 2.0 to 3.0 !! I will need some help with adjusting to my life on warfarin, Thanks Everyone.
