  • So sorry you're going through all of this. Try to keep your spirits up, are you able to read, knit, journal, have friends and family come to visit you ... ? Wishing you all the best. Anita

  • I wish u the best and hope that all will be well at the end keep a positive mind and u will be fine.

  • No it would not help to stop LMW Heparin injections which are needed whilst your INR is so low. Prof Hunt is an excellent Dr you are in safe hands. I'm sorry it's taking so long to get things sorted for you but I'm sure things will improve. I do hope things improve soon, do try and stay positive if you can as it will help you. Sending best wishes.
