I have been to the ER many times but never as the patient. Out of the blue Saturday morning my nose started to bleed. I do have a history of nose bleeds from time to time going back to when I was a teenager but never anything like this. I have had a few small nose bleeds since surgery last year but they resolved themselves in about five minutes. I think those were just due to the dry air inside. I know this was worse than I have ever experienced because of the warfarin and aspirin but it was still scary. This one went on for hours. Our nearest hospital is an hour away so that made for a fun car ride. Doctor finally got it to stop, packed my left nostril and sent me on my way with a prescription for Keflex. I follow up with an ENT doctor tomorrow to remove the packing and find the source of the bleed. INR was a 2.3 at the hospital which was a little higher than normal for me but still is in range. Keeping a close eye on my INR knowing that antibiotics can increase it. Wish me luck in resolving this issue before my two trips next month!!
