  • 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.

You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Malignant melanoma while taking requip
    I have been on Requip for RLS for about 6 years, and have noticed an increase in basal cell (lowest variety of skin cancer), and in May 2014 had surgery to remove melanoma (dime sized, 4.5 mm deep in scalp), and then another recurrence of melanoma in September 2014 (also on the scalp, where about 2/3 of scalp was removed down to skull), and now considered Stage 3B. So I am doing everything in my power to keep from another recurrence. I am going to discontinue taking Requip, since I do not know if there is a connection, but I cannot afford to take that life threatening risk in my opinion.
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
