Help please
Jun 30, 2005
I have been here before, but it has been awhile. I am Protein S def. and therefor clot to much. I had my first clot 6 years ago and have been on coumadin since. I also have had 14 clots in the leg and 3 in the lungs. Now here is the delima...

I have had alot of pain in left leg, starting at foot and moved to right behind knee. Went to Er, and tested + for clot. my pt level is to be at 2-3..it was 4.5 I didnt know you can get a clot while blood is so thin already. I am taking 15mg of coumadin daily, and now am on Lovenox injections 2x a day at home. My question is, dont the lovenox thin your blood even more? If I am already thin more then normal for me, will it even hurt me more?? The dr did tell me that he is going to start me on plavix in 2 weeks. Can I say goodbye to blood clots for good once on plavix??? I am so confused now.

Thanks..Laura
