      Thanks for the reply

      I got mine while traveling Asia through long bus journeys and so on. Did the doctor tell you to go on aspirin?? I've all ways taken fish oil I eat healthy and exercise most days. I don't have a clotting disorder either.

      Please tell me you are doing fine now. 

      Did you just switch over to aspirin from the blood thinner in one day?

      Ya pretty much. I stopped blood thinners may 2017 and have been on baby aspirin since. When I take road trips I take a higher dose of aspirin says my pulmonologist but so far I've been ok. Hopefully I stay that way.

      I want so badly to come off blood thinners and just take fish oil and aspirin!!! 

      How do you Do this? Did you stop and the next day you took aspirin?  Or did you taper off

      Hello

      Just realized this was my post lol. I went to the doctors they ran tests to make sure I'm safe to come off the blood thinners if your told to stay on them then stay on them. I take asprin and cod liver every day I assume it's working I haven't had another clot

      Thanks

      Hi James, 

      Thank you. Once I learned that tennis star Serena Williams takes anticoagulants daily I calmed down and realize you can still be productive on them. Thank you for responding. I am so happy to hear you are doing good!!!

      Hello

      Hope all is well, I suppose as long as your lung isn't damaged there is nothing stopping you living a active life I still run most days can't run as far but I still run with no pain just out of breath quicker

      Take care 😁

    James, 

    Please tell me, how are you? What blood thinner were you on and How did the switch happen? Did you just one day was on the blood thinner and the next day you started baby aspirin?
