Ashley
female
age 23
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.

  • This is a recent development after having been on these drugs for years, with the exception of the cefepime antibiotic. Recently added the ativan to help with the nervousness and shaking. Was in hospital for 10 days for surgery for a pseudomonaeus infection in leg and a rehab facility for 20 days after that, and then the shaking started.
