Gulp!!!!!

I think I may have taken my warfarin twice today. It was just so hectic that I'm simply not sure, usually I'm so careful. Does anyone know if there are any signs that I should look out for? Or should I just shrug it off. Btw I take 6.5 mg as a daily dose. I just don't know what to do.

Hello again

I hope all is well with everyone. I've been busy working on contacting the right people in order to get some retraining as I mentioned before. So far I've been coming up empty handed, but I'm trying to stay positive.



I was wondering something though, does anyone else get annoyed from time to time with the noise that their machanical valves make? Today is one of those days for me. Don't get me wrong, sure it's a sound that let's me know that it's still working, I just wish they could… Continue

Yet another question?¿

Hello again, I kinda made an inquiry about something on a previous post that I still haven't found a solution to. And if anyone else has any insight on this I would appreciate some feed back.



I used to work in construction before my surgery and like I mentioned before I tried after my operation and I can no longer do that job. So what I was wondering is what other kind of jobs do you thing I should look into out there. I live in Sudbury Ontario Canada, and I am itching to return back… Continue

Hi again

To start off I would like to thank the supportive words that all of you have said, it means a lot to know that I'm not alone. Because a lot of the time that is how I feel along with the fact that nobody in my life understands how I'm feeling, both mentally and physically. I'm not the same person that I was before my surgery. Even though my heart doctor adamantly says that I'm as good as new, even better than I was. I try and explain as best I can but it often feels like I can't find the right… Continue

For anyone wondering I'm only 35. I was operated on September 15 2010. I wasn't like this before my operation. I'm simply not the same person what so ever. I continue to try and become the old me but fail constantly. I'm trying to live a healthy life. I'm not into any drugs, or anything. Continue

I need help

Ever since my surgery I have felt different. Almost different I can't completely put into words how it feels inside only that it almost feels like I shouldn't have survived. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else but that is how I feel on a day to day basis. I have a wife and two nine year olds that love me unconditionally and yet I can't figure out why. I feel like I don't deserve anything I have and why I haven't been able to straighten out my life since my surgery. Almost like I… Continue
