Mine was very low, so I was given Vitamin K shots in the hospital till the INR was normal while taking Coumadin. Ain't had no problems since then. Had a great Cardio at that time. From India. They are the greatest Cardio doctors.If your INR was too low, you wouldn't have been given Vitamin K -- they probably gave you Lovenox (low molecular weight heparin).
If you don't like the normal prep, and don't mind enemas, you can do back to back enemas an hour or so before the procedure instead. It's not offered any more but used to be, and if you ask they will let you.Lost job. Lost insurance. I feel for you. At least Warfarin is relatively inexpensive, even without insurance - but a doctor to prescribe it may have added a lot of cost to that. Here's where having your own meter, and being able to self-test (and perhaps self-manage) can help you get through this.
I hope your situation has gotten better for you.
And - getting briefly political - it would be good to live in a country where they view medical care as a human right. Then you, and me (and my poor wife), and millions of others wouldn't have to worry about when a problem is large enough to seek medical help, balancing that against available finances, and when seeking medical help is worth cutting down the number of meals we have for a few months.
End of pollitical comment.
Again, I hope your situation has improved.
I'm told that they use some 'pretty good drugs' when doing a colonoscopy -- the biggest problem for most people is that damned prep.
Really sorry to hear that, @Rainbow.Hi Team. So back to hospital we go again. This time it’s a pulmonary embolism. They are treating it with drugs and hoping it will break up and disperse but have to wait for CT scan to see how it’s going.
