:-O That sounds like malpractice. They should know better -- and be able to do that better. Leaving you full of blood clots because they ripped the tube out instead of easing it out? That's just so wrong.

They use a finger stick. And it's ridiculously painful. They said it was because they use a type of stick that has dull needles instead of sharp needles. But I also think it's placement and depth as well, because one of the pharmacists can do it without pain, but the other two make me want to do it myself. You'd think they'd be trained better.

Thanks, Warrick. I have an appointment at the Coumadin clinic on Friday. I'll call them tomorrow though, and let them know that I was ridiculously, violently ill today, and see what they want me to do about tomorrow's dose. The sheet they gave me said that being ill can increase your INR levels.

I stayed away from greens until my next appt., and my INR was 3.1 today.

Thank you. I don't know if they're open tomorrow, but I'll try calling. I have an appt. on Tuesday. I'm just worried because it's been a month since they found the blood clot and my blood is finally in range (today). I don't know if there are any more clots lurking. At first, I was worried about Warfarin thinning my blood too much, now I'm worried that it's not going to be thin enough! LOL. They put me on Xarelto originally, but I got a hematoma on it, and there's no antidote to Xarelto. So, I had to go off everything for a week, and then switch to Coumadin.
