is there anything else l can take other than warfarin (rat poison) being as l have a mechanical valve, defib/pacemaker?
also, an enlarged heart....atrial fib and gosh knows what else...
l have very bad knees, took vioxx several months and now suffering for it.
a routine heart decath in preparation for knee surgery proved the heart able to withstand surgery - even tho l failed the nuclear stress test..........however, l bled internally, almost died april 13th and took 7 pints of blood.
l am scared about taking warfarin the rest of my life as they suggest. someone said that in czechoslovikia there is a drug to substitute it. do you know anything about that?
