Yes, had the PE and DVT februar 2013. Perhaps from paralyzed legs, or the many sugeries till then. Now on bloodthinner (marcumar = warfarin) and compression for lifetime. So I hope the next 40-50 years :-) Dont like the bloodthinner but who cares. Had a Dental extraction last monday. I am self tester for the blood INR value. And managed the INR of 2.0 on this day. But the blood was horrible - the whole day. Then 1 week later I was the heroe: Used my mouth shower - and bloody again. And a funny story: Cause I am numb on the right side, I have to care where I go. For my daughter I built up a bed. With many screws. At the end we missed one screw. Then I get up and my daughter was very white in the face. Cause the screw was in my knee. And now: Yes very very bloody thing again. Since then I like vampire stories much less.
