Commented on how much vitamin K intake on warfarin 5mg/day 8 months ago
I switched to Warfarin three weeks ago mainly to eat grapefruit. The subject of greens came up (via.K) and was told I can eat greens but keep it consistant. Salad one night, broccoli the next, green beans, salad etc. Has anyone heard of this or is on this type of diet.
Commented on My Name is Veronica, Co-Founder of INR Tracker, and I have a blood clotting disorder. Ask me anything. almost 2 years ago
My story started around 2 years ago after my right knee replacement with 2 DVT. A couple weeks later I went for a bloodiest and was put on Lovenox and coumadin which is a vial, needle do it your self injection. I did this for about 3 months and came off of it. I stopped all thinner's then.
The next year I had my left knee total replacement and after a few days, they found 2 DVT in my leg and 2 PE's. Blood thinners once again. I have been on this for a short time and I asked to be switched to Eliquis which requires no more blood tests. I thought alright.
Had a checkup about my clots. I told the PA that my leg was swollen much more than my right and had a severe headache for day's. That pushed them to do a bloodiest and a ultra sound which they found a 5th one as a PE.
Resolution: I will probably be on blood thinner's the rest of my life but the one good new's is I can eat grapefruit on Warafin and greens as long as you eat them consistently. Even though it is a pain, it is keeping me going. Yes I have down day's but who doesn't.
Good luck to all the blood clotters out there. It is definitely worth it.
My highest INRwas 5.95
Next visit within 6 days my INR was !.06 so I go from up to down and just hope i can get it stabilized soon
