Suggest dosage for Warfarin
I recommend as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
I understand your concern and would explain that your INR seems to be at therapeutical levels, which means that you are taking the right dose of warfarin.
Nevertheless, based on your symptoms and on your past medical history, a new blood clot can not be excluded.
Is this lump painful? Do you notice any skin changes?
I recommend consulting with your attending physician as soon as possible for a careful physical examination, a Doppler ultrasound of the leg vessels and some blood lab tests :
-complete blood count
-PCR, sedimentation rate
Hope to have been helpful!
Feel free to ask any other questions whenever you need!
I will visit my Doctor tomorrow and will ask for a referral to get a Doppler ultrasound done etc etc.
I don't know your nationality, but my G.P.Dr is a Fijian XXXXXXX and a very nice man and my specialist is Australian.
Thank you for your answer and advice. Kleopatra Hendy (Greek descent)
You are welcome!
Thank you for the additional information provided!
I strongly recommend you to go to the ER, especially if the pain gets worse and the lump gets bigger. You should perform the tests I mentioned before.
Do you have any leg swelling?
Please let me know your test results.
