Well, some good news, I took the cutting from the paper (mentioned in a previous post on the forum) to the doctor on Friday and waved it at him, and he's agreed to put me on warfarin rather than aspirin. I have to say I'm rather relieved. Got a blood test on Thursday and I guess when the results are back the week after I will be on warfarin. I know my Chads2vasc score is only 1 but nevertheless, as one of my cousins had several TIAs at my age (56) it is a big weight off my mind. I felt it was really helpful to have the newspaper article rather than try to argue myself for warfarin...
