Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you have suffered blood clot in lungs and for better health you changed diet and it has helped you lose 14 pounds then no need to take any fat burner just continue diet control and do exercise if it is advised by your doctor.If still there is need to reduce weight then consult your doctor whether to take some fat burner or medicine.Without his advice please don't take any medicine.
Thanks

I m currently in the hospital for blood clots. Got admitted yesterday. They told me that I have multiple clots in both lungs. This is my second time having these clots. I had them previously in 2010. Just trying to get 2nd opinions on treatment options and the best medications. Doctors unsure about the true causes. I was in the military in 2010 and had a 15 hour plane ride from Kuwait and I was on birth control for many years(since 1993). The doctors say that could have been the causes. I went from May to August 2010 thinking I had asthma. That was what the military doctors told me. This time, during Thanksgiving holidays, I rode to Texas by car from Atlanta which was about 10-11 hrs. I am 48 yrs old. The Drs are wanting to put in a filter this time but I ve not heard good news about those IVC filters and I ve also saw the law suit commercials on them recently. They say that now I will have to take Blood thinning medication for the rest of my life. They also tell me that there are better and newer meds than Coumadin available now? Does this mean that I have a respiratory condition or disease or what? Pulmonary Hypertension? Does this mean that I will have to be on a special diet while taking these meds? How will this affect my future? If traveling over ? hours or my mode of travel is an issue now, what are your recommendations? Are my lungs scarred/or damaged from having these clots? Any other recommendations, tips, instructions to handing this condition. What type of recovery plan do you recommend once I get discharged?

Feb 2010 I suffered heart & lung failures caused by blood clots for which I take Warfarin 4mg everyday. I used to take Aerius for my allergies, but was told in the Spring (by my pharmacist) to stop. My Cardiologist now tells me I should be able to safely resume the use of Aerius. Also, I do have a hole in my heart. As well I have asthma (brincanyl & symbicort). I also take crestor, coversyl, el troxin & percocet (1 per day). I would sincerely appreciate your best advice to my dilemna. P.S. My respirologist bows to my cardiologists decision & tomorrow, March 30/11, I will be consulting with my GP & pharmcist. Thank you again.

Hello, I am on Warfarin for A-Fib. I had a bad cold and was coughing a lot. During one coughing fit I experienced a sharp pain and slight swelling just at the bottom of my rib cage. Applied ice and pain subsided but is painful to cough at all. That was about 5 days ago. Today I notice a huge bruise across my side and stomach. There is no pain except when I cough. I m aware of the bruising factor when taking warfarin, it s just the size of this bruise is alarming. Any thoughts ?
