Prior to having surgery to replace my right shoulder, I was taken off warfarin and put on lovenox injections. After the surgery, I have been taking warfarin and lovenox injections until my INR is therapeutic, 2I.5 -3.5. But, for some reason, my INR keeps going in the wrong direction, as the Doctor increases my dosage! Two days after restarting warfarin my INR was 1.9 on 10mg, it has gone down with every subsequent test...even though the warfarin dosage has increased.
Currently I'm on 13mg warfarin daily, and my INR was 1.1 this afternoon; of course I feel better when it is at it's highest.
Any suggestions, comments or info would be greatly appreciated.
