Discharged

Today marks exactly 6 months and 2 days from diagnosis of my blood clot and it was my final INR check at the anti-coagulation clinic. I came off the warfarin a week ago and had to check in today to make sure that my blood had gone back down to an INR of 1.0, the … Continue reading Discharged

First week with a DVT

So it's been just over a week since my DVT was diagnosed and what a week it has been. It really knocks your confidence and is quite a shocking thing to be told you have. Quite a lot and yet not a lot has happened since my last post. I don't think there will be … Continue reading First week with a DVT
