Just goes to show, you don't ask you don't get!
My INR invariably goes haywire whenever I travel, get sick, am tired, am flaring (Lupus), change my exercise routine... Which more or less leaves me at the warfarin clinic every week. I believe I once had a 6 week gap between appointments. In nearly 4 years that's the longest time I've spent away from the surgery.
I'm going on holiday on Monday for 10 days. My INR still hasn't stabilised from my long weekend in Barcelona at the beginning of August. I asked the GP for Clexane instead as I don't really want to fly with my INR at 2.1 on warfarin, without an appointment for 2 weeks. After much humming and procrastinating, I chipped in that I really wanted to discuss maybe off licence trialling me on dabigatran or rivaroxaban when I get back. Suddenly Clexane for 2 weeks didn't seem like such an unreasonable request.
Yippeekayay! Not sure anyone reasonably sane should be this happy about self injecting for a fortnight but I'm just sad like that
