I'm also on for life. I started in Sept. '12. I can take a multi w/ Vit. K. I can have 1-2 C. of leafy greens, veggies w/ Vit. K a day as long as I am consistent. I've had one large bruise, I didn't remember hitting anything, but my levels were normal and it healed quickly. My INR has to be between 2.5 and 3.0. I developed a clot while on Coumadin, so they want me levels to be higher. It's a tight range. Last check I was at 2.8, so that's perfect. I get it checked again at the end of the month. My doctor's office has a INR machine so I don't need my blood drawn all the time, yay!!

I'm 27 and I haven't met a lot of people my age on Coumadin. The only ones I "know" are from an on-line support group for May-Thurner's Syndrome.

Thanks for replying.
