I filled the questionnaire in, but how the questions are worded don't really give a good picture for those taking warfarin.
My husband was put on warfarin 2 years ago. He has NEVER seen a haematologist, and the GPs surgery only wanted to see him once every 10 weeks.
We have now purchased a coagucheck machine to do it ourselves at home, as his INR goes up and down like a yoyo.
We have tried talking to the Hospital that gave him the warfarin in the first place and have tried getting them to respond by going to the ombudsman...no help whatsoever.
He was mixed up with a patient with a similar surname and given that patients drugs to take home!...we have been trying ever since to find out if he should even be on warfarin.
He takes it because is frightened not to...but the side effects are horrendous.
