My husband, brother in law, and another man I met just this last week all have one thing in common. They all three took or are taking Warfarin. All three have low red blood count, problem with water retention, fatigue, lack of oxigine and can not breath when walking short distances. My husband has had to have blood transfusions ever three months but they never give him enough to add up to correct amounts for his size and gender. What studies have been made to correct the loss of red blood cell count and formulation back into ones system once it has been, what appears to me and aulteration of correct blood cell making? We need to know this treatment, like asap. Our doctors have not come up with a reason for the loss of these mens blood. It strikes me funny that all three of these men have this problem in common and all three took this blood thinner. Lodgic tells me there has to be a connection. My husbands blood doctor has hit a blink wall. We have done the Vit k. Iron injections, B12, all the tests of gi, stomach, UA, and BM. No blood loss found for these areas. Now the Doctors are grasping at straws and want to see if chemo-therepy would not help. All I can see that doing is putting toxic drugs into my husbands body that mostlikely will cause him more problems to deal with. This has us both quite upset that he is being used as a gennie pig, because the doctors have not been told the dangers of taking Warfarin. Please advise us what to do so we can help our doctor help treat my husband correctly and safely.
