I have recently been diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolism and currently taking warfarein. Into my second week. I am not getting any straight answers to some simple questions and was wondering if anyone could help.
I am being told that the drug can have various side effects and it can cause of excessive bleeding and bruising. Also being told I cannot risk a head injury. Well, I am in a job which involves having to deal with potentially violent people. So the risk is always there.
I have asked nurses and Drs at the anticoagulant clinic and they only say 'refer to your occ health department' and in turn they say " be directed by your consultant". Does anyone have any experience of this ? Help an confused mind. Can I continue doing my job or do I need to change it? Or am I overacting.
