Hey all, I am hoping everyone is doing GREAT!!! Haven't posted in a while but wanted to get some opinions.
Had a PE during my last surgery of 27 Feb 07 which made the surgeon and doctors agree I should go on blood thinners for about 9-12 months per industry standard, but now the doctor I am seeing for my blood thinning regime is stated that since I have had cancer that I will probably have to stay on the blood thinners for life. Since I was not happy with that statement I asked my Primary Care doc, an well known internist and he disagreed because if there is NO cancer the risk is no loner there. I also got the same impression from my Oncologist who is also a blood doctor (forgot the special name).
