THE IN BETWEEN TIME
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have APS and was hospitalized 2yrs ago with multiple blood clots (a PE, ONE IN MY JUGULAR AND LEFT LEG). I have been having difficulty swallowing and having a feeling of food not going down, which makes me have these bouts of severe coughing. So my Gastro doc wants me to have an endoscopy. But he wants me off blood thinner for 4/5 days prior. My hematologist says I can't be off my blood thinner that long. My hematologist then gave me a box of LOVENOX to take 3 days prior stopping the day… read more

To MyCrazyLife - I'm laughing because that 1-2-3-GO is what I do with injectables. A nurse taught me. I actually cannot push the needle in without the 123GO mantra. I grab the belly fat, 123GO, push… read more

Stopping Coumadin?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

@Coumadin and Colonoscopy -
In a few days I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy/EGD to look for the reason I am severely anemic. I am also on @Coumadin since I have Antiphospholipid Syndrome in addition to Lupus. The directions for the colonoscopy prep say to stop my @Coumadin 4 days before the procedure but I'm curious if I need to be put on Lovonox in the meantime. My PCP nurse says that I'll be taken off everything and then bridged back to @Coumadin with @Lovenox after the procedure but I… read more

Every time I have surgeries, I'm always taken off of it for many days. They will hook you up in the recovery. You'll be fine.

Iam Having Dental Work And I Know 2 Teeth Are Going To Have To Be Extracted. I Have APS And Take BLOOD THINNERS. Has Anyone
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

stopped taking the blood thinners prior to the blood work or after; And if so how long did you stop the meds? My concern is that with APS, it is IMPERATIVE to take BLOOD THINNERS,. If any WARRIORS can share their experience or give me some advice it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A MyLupusTeam Member

the drug BUPROPION caused me to grind my teeth badly and ended up having TMJ. And TMJ is one of the worse pains. I now take Ativan and Lunesta at night. I feel so much better.

NO, normally just by examining a blood smear under the microscope, it's easy to determine if it's clumped platelets or truly low numbers of them. Please request this if not yet done.

Does Anyone Else Have APLS? If So Are You On Blood Thinners?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am currently needing to decide whether or not to go back on Lovenox. Ideally I would but the issue is I have had several internal bleeds from the Lovenox. So I have to decide to risk clots or do I take the med and risk a major bleed? Stressful.

A MyLupusTeam Member

I understand your concerns with Lovenox. Why do they want to put you back on it. My doctors told us that we always have to have blood work with the blood thinners. We both were on Eliqius. But after… read more
