Just wondering if anyone else is on the warfarin / Asprin combination? Why would it be nessscary? Wouldn't effective warfarin therapy management be enough?

When I was doing my PhD, we found that even without legs, ants had no resemblance to platelets. Ants are heaps bigger than platelets. You need a microscope to see platelets, but ants you can see with your bare eyes. There is no way you can stop bleeding with ants. I cut myself shaving once and the ants wouldn't stay still for long enough; so we cut off their legs and it made no difference. Professor Giuseppe Sforza replicated the study last year and got the same results. Sorry for the scientific jargon.Warrick;n885540 said:How say you ??
Interesting. I thought you were an advocate for running on the high side of an INR range to be "safe", wouldn't the same philosophy keep you on the baby aspirin? I believe in being within the INR range but don't worry if I go out either way. My range is tight though, 2-2.5.pellicle;n885519 said:...I gave up the baby aspirin about a year after my surgery ... just because I was too lazy to go get some more (meaning I forgot about it every time I went out)
The thing is that I've read a lot on this issue and there isn't much to support that aspirin makes any difference. This is in contrast to warfarin which there is a ton of evidence to support.tom in MO;n885546 said:Interesting.
