Welcome to the group. I too have had a PE and am on warfarin. Lucky me, inherited Factor V mutation from my Mom. Being on warfarin can be a challenge since it reacts with changes in our diet and other medications, but you get used to it. Good luck.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling… And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

Live in such a way that those who know you but don't know God
will come to know God because they know you

Hi my name is Lisa, seriously going to try and lose weight so I joined spark people!

About a month and a half ago (4/1) I was hopsitalized for a massive PE. Got the TPA, then heperian, then lovonox and warfarin and was finally discharged 4 days later. All of this at 21. I have no genetic history just I was taking birth control.

Now I am just on warfarin for the next 2 years.

I recently completed my semester (at college) on time and with a 4.0! (I tend not to brag, but hey I think I have good reason this time).

I was cleared to start exercising about a month ago, but currently I am only running 1-1.5 miles 3x a week. Still pretty good considering. Hopefully this summer I can regain my previous fitness level and be healthier.
