I had to go back into hospital for five days as my blood levels ( INR) dropped to 1.3 . I have to be between 2.5 and3.5 to be in to what called the therapeutic range . Too low and I’m at risk of throwing blood clots from my mechanical heart valve , too high and internal bleeding . It went last Monday from 7.1 to 1.3 !!!!!!!
so admitted and on I V heprin . I kept aying I have a gastric bypass but they said is that they have another lady who had a gastric bypass and on Warfin , but it seems as my blood levels have to be a bit higher and making it more difficult . They kept talking about eating more vitamin K which I do . The nurse specialist and my self checked. The forceval vitamin Px by GP and also recommended by dietitian and it doesn’t contain any vitamin K !!!!!! But the vitamin dodah takes does .so I’m sharing this just in case any one further down the line need Warfin
