Welcome to the thrombosis group. This is a supportive group for people who suffer from or who know people who are suffering from vascular problems such as blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis, varicose veins, phlebitis, and pulmonary emboli.
POLLS: We're trying to compile a list of common (though "unofficial") side effects of warfarin therapy and the age that people were when first diagnosed. Please stop by and record your Coumadin/warfarin side effects in the Coumadin poll
and your age at diagnosis in the age poll
. There are other interesting polls there so check them out while you're there (and if you have a good idea for a new poll, send a message to Motsa
, the forum moderator).
We're also trying to compile a database of the type of hormones thrombosis sufferers were on when they got their clots. If you are a woman who was on the Pill or HRT when you were diagnosed, please stop by the Pill database
and record what brand of medication you were on at the time.
This is largely a self-moderating group in that the moderator will only step in if complaints are made. Members are expected to treat one another civilly, even if they don't agree with what is being posted.
While members may offer advice and suggestions to each other over the course of posting here, please remember that this is not a medically-supervised group. Even if members have a medical background, any suggestions offered by them here should not be construed as medical advice. You should confirm any suggestions offered with an actual healthcare provider.
