Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can warfarin cause a weak fingerprint
    I had a deep vein thrombosis 3month's ago the doctor put me on warfarin the other day I have to go and renew my drivers licence and find out that my fingerprints is to weak. can the warfarin cause this problem
  • Safety of nattokinase
    tooth removed needed 5 f red blood cells and 4 of plasma
  • Is plavix safe to take for deep veiw thrombois
    I still end up with a blood clot to right leg I started up on lovenox for about10 years or more I was switched because I was told it was cheaper
  • Effects of moringa on warfarin
    I am taking 11mg warfarin and find I have no energy. I am thinking of taking moringa, will this affect the warfarin?
  • Treatment for a dvt in person with lung cancer
    Have contracted a large painful DVT in groin thru calf. Hospicis doctor will only administer Aspirin 325 mg. what I have researched does this not address dissolving clot. Hospicis doctor told me the tumor lung cancer was more likely to bleed with treatment to dissolve clot. She was negative and said the lung cancer was going to cause death anyway so she wouldn't treat large painful DVT because it may cause bleeding, i.e. more harm.

    Can anyone tell me if use of warfarin or other blood thinners are less likely used in lung cancer patients? When admitted to Hospicis in Dec I was on Warfarin and continued use for several weeks until Hospicis stopped treatment.

    I'm considering leaving Hospicis and returning to my previous doctors. I am significantly improved now from Dec. My oxygen use was 5 lt when admitted to Hospicis and now almost never require oxygen use.
