I apologise for going off topic to a degree but I thought this a good place to get an opinion on something. I have a friend (about 68) who had a TIA over a year ago. No long term effects other than loss of peripheral sight in one eye and small loss of hearing in an ear. He is on quite a lot of medication including statins and drugs for diabetes 2. He told me he takes about 8 pills a day. I asked if he was on anti-coags and he said no. I accepted this but was a little surprised.
Then the other day, he showed me these marks on his arm and said he was a little concerned about them but won't go to the GP. They looked like blood blisters underneath the skin. He also had a scab on his arm where he'd cut himself and he said it took longer than he would have expected to stop bleeding.
Does this sound like he IS on anti-coags? How can somebody be on them and yet not know about it. I recommended he ask his GP about this but I'm not sure he will.
