They have not tested me for the Factor V or Protein S..I have never heard fo that but I will ask because my doctor that did the surgery was really shocked that I got a Bllod Clot in week three almost week four after my surgery but I go back to him tomorrow and I have not seen him since I was Hospitalized for the blood clot so I will see what he says tomorrow.

Thanks so much for the advice..I can use all I can get at this point!

Thanks,
Jeanne

Hi Jeanne,
Having a blood clot can be a scary thing, but I'm glad to hear that they were able to detect it and put you on medication to help control it.

On the green leafy vegetables, my doctor said that it shouldn't affect your INR levels too much as long as you eat the same way you were eating before starting coumadin. They will probably have to adjust how much coumadin you take, but at least you can still eat them. He did also mention that I shouldn't go on a strictly Vitamin K diet, like a brocoli diet, but that I can still eat them. I would check with your doctor and see what they suggest.

I hope that helps and makes sense. Have you been tested for any of the blood dificieny's like Factor V or Protien S? Or do the doctors feel that it was from the surgery that you formed the blood clot?

Hello everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jeanne and I am 42 (43 on April 4th) and live in Tennessee.

I recently on February 13th had Tummy Tuck Surgery and March 2nd found out I had developed a sizable blood clot in my upper thigh. I was placed on Lovenox and 10 mg Coumidin. I am off the Lovenox now but still taking the Coumidin. This has been a very scary thing for me and like most probably neer thought it would happen to me. But now I have to learn to live with it and I thought being a member of this group would be a great idea so I can learn from those of you and get advice from those of you that have been doing this a while.

My biggest thing about it all it the Vitamin K...I am a big Vegetable eater especially green leafy ones and I do not want to sabotage my weight loss because of this.

If anyone has any suggestions for me or tips, please feel free to give them to me.

I also had Lap Band surgery in March of 2006..so if anyone needs information on that I can help you with that.

Thanks
Jeanne Jones
