Default Can I get a YAY????

Can I get a YAY?

I just got news from my doc.... I CAN STOP TAKING COUMADIN!!!

I will no longer take this medicine for the next 6 weeks. Then I'll have all the same tests done again, & if I'm still doing well, then I won't have to go back on the medicine! (of course, if I'm not doing so well... I'll be on it again for the next six months... let's hope not!!!!)

This is such a big huge deal for me! - that means that I will have MORE energy (to exercise!) and I can eat foods with Vitamin K again! - WOO HOO! Broccoli, lettuce, mustard greens, HERE I COME!!!!!

That's terrific news! I hope your tests in 6 weeks will go well, and that you won't have to take this medicine again!

(Both my parents are on Previscan -- same kind of medicine, from what I gather -- and planning meals is a nightmare. There are more fruits/veggies that contain vitamin K than I thought at first. It must be such a relief for you to be allowed to eat them again.)
