Last week, I had some bleeding, really unexpected, as gone through the menopause and out the other side or so I thought - well based on me taking warfarin and my INR was 3.9 I had to go to the hospital to get checked - the doctor there has said, there was a tablet/injection (sorry already forgot which) which would stop the blood flow to my uterus - and yes it was safe with warfarin - we went through my medical history and I was surprised he said he knew about APS so I thought "result" this doesn't happen often. Anyhow, he decided to scan me first and take it from there, as and my INR had gone down from the previous day to 2.4 for me to go to my GP for referral to Gyny - jeepers sorry hope this makes sense! - anyhow went to my GP as bleeding was getting worse, I told her about the drug the hospital was going to give me, she said she just wanted to check it would be ok - yes she said it's fine with warfarin, on no no no she said, you didn't have this med did you? I told her no, she said thank goodness, you cannot take it with APS!!
How are we patients ever going to get well if doctors cannot get it right, and who is to say, we are not better as we may of been given wrong drugs in the past! And worse still how to work out who is right and who is wrong, and they all seem to know what they are talking about right?
