Commented on My Name is Veronica, Co-Founder of INR Tracker, and I have a blood clotting disorder. Ask me anything. almost 4 years ago
Hello Radha, hope your niece is doing better. My first pulmonary embolism I was put on warfarin and heprin, they told me any test would show false/positives. So I didn't know what caused it in the beginning. It wasn't till 2013 while not taking warfarin cuz lack of insurance. I was rushed to hospital with bilateral pulmonary embolism and pneumonia. They test me and diagnosed me with protein s and c dificincy. And depending on the size of the clot I was told the heparin usually breaks it down. Or the can go in and break it up. My INR I supposed to be between 2.5 and 3.5 guess it depends on your condition.hope this info helps some.
Hello Veronica, I am a Lifer of Warfarin. My story begins in dec 2007 I had a pain in my right calve, what looked to be a broken blood vessel. I didnt pay to much attention to it, till it started hurting real bad. I went to ER where they told me it was thromophlobitis, and it would go away. I went home, and 2 days later I couldnt walk on, putting my foot down caused me so much pain. it wrapped around my big toe. so again I went into the ER. they couldnt find anything sent me on my way. I woke the next morning couldnt breath and coughing up blood. takin by abulance, they ran test and told me I had a blood clot in my lung. spent 1 week in the hospital. heprin shots to give myself, and warfrin. i took the warfein for about 3 months. and a months later I had another pulmonary emboli. thats when they said I'd be on warfrin for life. I didnt know what I had for anohter 6 years, when I lost my medical. and didnt have my meds to take. rushed to er coughing up blood they found bilateral PE and pneomonia. and did a d-dimer test and diagnosed me with protein s and c dif.
