This is just a minor point. I used to have lovely nails, strong, nice shape. However after over 5 months on the warfarin and various other meds following my mitral valve repair, which I am no longer taking, my nails are awful, weak, brittle, peeling and frankly a mess. I have started taking my multi vitamin again and I am eating a balanced diet, with plenty of fruit and veg. I am keeping them short,(no choice really Ha ha) I work in a customer facing role and they are very noticeable. Has anyone else had problems with their nails after heart surgery. If so how long did they take to return to normal? I am due to see my GP later next week, but thought I'd ask on here as a general enquiry, if anyone had any suggestions. I was told by a beautician not to wear false nails as this would hinder their recovery. She did tell me to see my GP.
Thanks in advance.
