ashley (3 years ago):
I was put on coumadin after i broke my neck in April 2007 right before i turned 18 years old. I was on it for a year and i was also on lovenox shots for about 3-5 weeks a long with the coumadin at fist. now at the age of 23 i just had my first hernia repair and i am two weeks into recovery and just developed a second hernia that is that size of a small grape. for being in very good health and 23 years old. The blood thinners seems to the only logical reason why i would develop a hernia let alone two of them.
