Is this real? Was just browsing the net....my husband had a bleeding ulcer in Nov, 2011 and now they want him on Coumadin. It is to avoid a stroke . He recently had a pacemaker/defib put in but has Afib . If he hasn t had bleeding since the one event, is it safe to take the Coumadin, or must he have a scope to check it out? Bleeding was from years of Plavix and aspirin ...thank you.
How long does an angiogram take? My mother just had a small heart attack and is in hospital. She has had a pacemaker for 10 years after going into heart block and almost dying. Would it be better for her to have a pacemaker with a defibrillator or just replace the original pacemaker. Thanks
I have a pacemaker, due to atrial fibrillation, and have been put on coumadin. It does not seem to thin my blood, and am on 750 mg a day, and it makes me nauseous and extremely dizzy, to the point where I can t function. Are there any foods that help thin the blood? Also, do fish oils help or hinder the thinning process? I would really like to take less medication and get results that are favorable.
