    Post-op Warfarin

    So they are saying take 57.5mg a week, up from the 54mg. So 57mg a week is 8.21mg a day and 54mg a week is 7.7mg a day, its much easier and generaly your INR is more stable to think in daily doses not as a lump sum a week. Curious what pill sizes you have-...

    Mitral valve replacement mechanical

    Yep its not easy, especially when you feel young and bullet proof. I felt at the time I was not sick before but now I am. In hindsight I would have been dead a few years at least by now if I did not get it done and really for me six years on now and its gone pretty quick since. Its not something...

    Post-op Warfarin

    Its very normal for your warfarin dose to need to increase over several weeks/months after surgery. There are many many references to this fact in the posts here but it might be a difficult one to search out. I started out way back on 5mg daily, Im currently taking 10.5mg. @pellicle...

    Definition of communism- “a theory or system of social organization in which all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs.” Sounds like a forum to me 😂😂🤪

    Gag reflex warfarin

    Yep warfarin tastes yuck if you dont get it down quick enough. Might be a silly question for everyone but could you dissolve warfarin in warm water and drink it? Guess you could. Also if you hold your nose you cannot taste, so maybe if its a taste thing you could try that? I do that when I...

    I'm a little worried! Valve leakage!!

    Does mild to moderate leakage cause the ventricle to enlarge or remodel? If so then wouldnt that necessitate replacement?
