Chuck - why do you have to stay away from leafy vegetables?  This is the first time I've ever heard a doc say to do this.  Usually they say eat more!  Does it interact with your meds?  Does it help thin your blood too much?

The Vitamin K in the leafy vegetables counteracts the Warfarin and the anticlotting factor is gone, thus increasing the chances of a blood clot!

That's crazy.  It seems that too much of anything is bad for you.  The old saying everything in moderation certainly gets more truth added to it as time goes on.  Thanks for the explanations everyone.

Yesterday I had a swollen left leg , painful to walk on and shortness of breath.  So went to the Emergency room.  Lots of tests and blood clots in my leg and right lung.  At six pm they admitted me to hospital with a Heprin drip plus frequently taking blood. Fun fun fun. But I am very lucky I came to hospital. I will keep you posted on this Adventure

I'm so sorry to hear that, but you're in the right place to heal.  Wish you a quick recovery.

I'm sorry to hear about the clotting issue but am thankful that you made a wise decision and are in a hospital where they can properly care for you.  Please keep us posted.

No Fear it is what it is . They are still doing tests, I just had an Echo done on my heart. Still have Heprin drip and they take blood every six hours. I am in good spirits . I get to laugh about the guy in the next bed , his wife is the Boss . Squeeky wheel gets the grease  and she has complained to anyone and everyone.  Poor guy just needs some Rest.

I can appreciate the dangers of a blood clot but I'm distrustful of a medical system that continues to sell drugs and surgery over lifestyle changes. I think that as a society we are getting more and more out of shape despite having a higher standard of living than nearly the entire world. When we were kids they told us to eat more carbohydrates and less meat. We now know that was bad advice. Now they're telling you not to eat vegetables and to take more drugs ?! I think we'd be more healthy if we all just used some common sense and stayed out of the doctor office. Get off the refined sugar, the processed food, the alcohol, and get some exercise.

I should be leaving hospital today,  they have put me on Zarelto . Since this is my second time I will have to be on it for Life.  Still no answer as to how I am getting these blood clots in my leg and my lung. So I am still in good spirits it's just a bump in the road.
