Four years ago (almost exactly) I had just returned from Derriford Hospital in Plymouth having had an operation for cancer.
A few days after coming home, I collapsed in the bathroom and hit the stone floor, hard!!!! When I came to and got up I realised that I was bleeding - my lip was split. I assumed that a tooth had gone through my lip or that hitting the floor so hard had split my lip.
Four years on, if I smile too widely my lip bleeds. I think that, after hitting the floor with such force, I should have had my lip stitched.
I think that I have kept the lip balm industry going by buying so many products from them (I use Vaseline or lip balm ('Berry Blast' is the latest)).
It has never occured to me to ask the Doc what I should do about it.
Has anyone any idea how to make my lip heal properly? I'm on Warfarin (for life) and every time it bleeds it doesn't stop for ages.
