Morning all ... Me again ..... Following my food poisoning a few days ago ... As predicted, my INR is all over the place. Had a nose bleed yesterday which prompted a visit to the local A & E. The Doctor there was very helpful and understanding. A blood test showed that my INR had risen to 3.7 - a tad high, so my Warfarin dose has been temporarily reduced. Am due to fly out to Valencia on Tuesday for a 9 day holiday. We should board the ship on Thursday for 7 nights - am waiting to hear if they carry out INR tests in their clinic. The A & E Doctor did not say shouldn't go but obviously I need to be able to check the INR, be good if the ship did this but if not will have to pursue a port clinic. Any thoughts from you out there? Thanks. Ps Haven't had any nose bleeds since (fingers crossed)!
