Hello..
Welcome to health care magic forum.
Clot in the leg veins are common to have post pregnancy. Acitrom is a blood thinning medicine. It is a condition which requires treatment for 6 months along with compression stockings to prevent damage to your veins also to reduce swelling. Your PT/INR is normal now. You have to monitor PT/INR once a week it has to be between 2-3.5. Dosage of Acitrom to be adjusted accordingly. You can feed your baby, provided you give milk after 3 hours of taking tablet and check baby's PT/INR once in 3 weeks. Monitor baby's urine for blood.
You can continue your seizure medicines with consult of your neurologist. Seizure medicines do interact with Acitrom hence to be taken with caution.
You have to avoid Cabbage, Spinach,Peas, Ground nuts, Bone marrow and liver in your diet as they can thicken the blood even more.
For chest pain you have to talk to your doctor immediately as the blood clot might travel to your lung and cause breathing difficulty. You may require Chest X ray/ CT.
