Advice & Tips
I had two major episodes of massive spontanous bleeding in the past year. On both occassions loss half my blood volume in my abdomen, despite weekly self INR home monitoring. Still had a few episodes of clots breaking and lodging elsewhere, from older clots in my neck from years ago! Hence, I have a filter and asprin on board.
