I'm fell on my patio and hit my head on the cement last Saturday. Because I'm on warfarin it ended up with a brain bleed. Now Thank God it resolved on its own without surgery. In have a major concussion and double vision (stacked not side by side. While in the hospital the team is was working with agreed that it most likely have APS in addition to the Lupus and the Factor 5 Lieden thrombophelia. They gave me vitamin K and have stopped my Warfarin. Now I'm terrified of getting a clot. I have to see my hematologist in a week and he will determine when it's safe to restart the Warfarin. He will also test for APS. it's not even safe to bridge with anything. Has anyone been through this? They said it's unlikely in would get a clot in a week, but if i do have Hughes doesn't that make it more likely. I'm would like to ask for everyone's prayers that is do not get a clot and that when it do start back on Warfarin that is don't have any issues with bleeding in the brain. I'm scared out of my wits here. Any advice or words of comfort?
