    Unusually LOUD heartbeat

    I’ve never heard a click. Mine has always been a thump. Sometimes it’s louder than others. After 16 years I don’t notice it as much.

    Traveling to a different time zone, when to take warfarin

    I take mine in the morning regardless of where I am. We travel abroad fairly often. It’s never been an issue. My INR remains stable. No worries!☮️

    Newbie Freaking Out in S. Louisiana

    Welcome!! This place was a lifesaver for me 12 years ago. I was two months away from 50 and went mechanical. Everyone is different and you will get a wide range of opinions here. Remember to listen to you doctors and your heart. I have had no problem with warfarin. I've had two surgery's...

    Greetings! Just dropping in to see what condition my condition was in. Good to see a few familiar faces. All is going well in Chimpville; DW is doing well and we are traveling as much as possible. I'm still fighting the battle of the bulge but that's what started this thread 100 years ago...
