    Minor AS and finding a partner

    So sorry about your son's health issue. He will be fine with his friends. Just keep making sure he knows he does not need to have marriage and kids to have a relationship with a woman. And he has nothing to prove to anyone that he can marry. He is fine and he will eventually find the special...

    Minor AS and finding a partner

    You do not need children since you cannot provide for yourself. Kids are expensive these days, medicine, school supplies and clothes, diapers, clothes, clothes and clothes. Learn to love and respect yourself first, then get the girlfriend, then if you are not too old, make babies. No rush at...

    Minor AS and finding a partner

    @newarrior maybe you are going at the dating scene wrong. Are you bringing up your health issues on the first date, second date, third date? You need to leave the heath issues till later, when it might become serious. Nothing chases women off than one who is obsessed with his health issues 24/7...

    Should I Have a Stent?

    Because the aortic valve is in the middle of the heart, the heart has to come out for the repair or replace. Hence the cracking of the chest, hence the heart and lung machine used. There is no simple way to get to the aortic valve but to take the heart out to get to it. You can't do that with a...

    Lumps and bruises

    If you are on Coumadin(warafarin) and asprin, you will have these more easily. You will not always feel a bump into a door or your leg hit a chair leg. It happens. I have been dealing with this since OHS in 2001. Goes with the territory. And the INR does not need to be up to 4, needs to be a...

    St Jude Valves

    Here is my take, some people cannot take the generics due to their body chemistry. I can take the warafarin, the generic. And I can take the real deal, Coumadin. It just depends on your body chemistry.

    Should I Have a Stent?

    Cardiac surgeons do put in stents, not the cardiologist, for the cardiologist is not a trained surgeon. Food for thought.

    Should I Have a Stent?

    You need to ask your cardio questions about this, for that is what the cardio is supposed to do and you to follow up, be proactive in your heart health. And also talk to the surgeon, for both of them are to be working for your well-being. So sorry you are getting so much information in so many...

    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    Aspirins are blood thinners also. If the blood is thinned out by medication and food intake, you can have a emergency when you cut yourself and can't stop the bleed, thus having to go to the emergency room. The reason it Coumadin and aspirins are called blood thinners, it the time it takes for a...

    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    Warafarin and coumadin are called blood thinners, cause they do thin the blood. Protime, INR is to see how slow the clotting takes when using a blood thinner. If your blood take too long to clot, then it is a clot emergency and you have a small cut on the finger, and keeps bleeding without...

    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    What a coumadin(warafarin) emergency is, when the INR(protime) numbers are so low, that you risk a very serious bleed. I know about the fake science on many different medications have been popping up lately. Even for Type 2 diabetics on Metformin, saying that they are not prescribing anymore...

    What aspirin does is thins the blood. There have been some studies to suggest for some patients to stop the aspirin regiment as it thinned to blood too much, and that can happen to some of us.

    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    That is uncoated aspirins, I know from my mother taking them for RA(Rheumatoid Arthritis). Coated aspirin coats the stomach and intestines. People prefer coated aspirins due to the coating the stomach and helps prevent stomach upset. And thank for the advice to talking to their doctors'...

    Minor AS and finding a partner

    OPH does not affect dating at all. It is the mind at work. Medication does not affect dating either. just the state of mind of the patient. I am a single person, who has not dated much and am quite content being a (what they called single women at one time) a spinster. No men, no children to...
