I am not tolerating warfarin very well due to its sodium content.
I have just spoken to the haematology nurse to explain how poorly I was on Friday night with the increased dose of warfarin 5mg my INR was1.3. The nurse has told me there is nothing else they can offer me other than the warfarin and went on to real off names of anticoagulants they are unable to get hold of.
I have waited 5 weeks to see a Dr because I was in need of a double appointment to discuss a number of issues. After a long wait I am pleased to say my appointment is this Wednesday, I shall most certainly be asking to be seen by a haematology consultant and not just as I am now by the nurses.
I shall travel to Oxford if the need be to be seen by somebody who understands the condition. I am on antibiotics so as advised by somebody on here I to asked to be put on LMH whilst being anticoagulated but this was refused.
Any advice would be welcomed or the name of a really good specialist in Oxford would be a great help.
