told i can stop warfarin 3 weeks earlier than end date?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was diagnosed dvt in right calf due to birth control, I have a terrible time on warfarin from swelling of stomach and everything under my rib cage to sweating, nausea, fatigue and a lot more. I was trying to get a change in medication which was like pulling teeth and the last straw was to sit it out at dvt clinic where I wasn't originally sent due to being on a ward. Anyway I was told yesterday by the consultant I could stop my medication wasn't due to stop till 29th Oct so it's 3 weeks early to my 12 weeks. Obviously very glad and last night first night of not feeling as bad as I have. I am however a little baffled that 12 weeks turned into 9 with no follow up or even seeing me, just decided from reading my notes. Anyone else been told they could finish earlier than expected?

    I was also on the depo. So was also a combo of weight smoking depo etc. Lost weight etc. U don't have to remove all ur ovaries etc. Use the mirena its safe if u have blood clot risk. Im using it. Lasts 5 years. U can do the d-dimer at any blood testing place or through ur gp.
