I was diagnosed almost 2 months ago with a deep vein blood clot in my left leg below the knee. They put me on the Coumadin and told me to be careful, and try not to get any cuts or injuries that bleed. I had asked them about my monthly visitor (period), and they said to be VERY careful and not to do to much heavy work during that time. I am trying to figure out if they meant EVERY month or just the first one after starting the medicine. I am asking on here because the doctors office isn't open yet. I do plan on calling them, I just wanted to get some other opinions before that. My husband and I worked in the yard yesterday cleaning up the leaves from last fall. Then I woke up this morning to go out and start working again, but my (friend) showed up. I am just curious if there are any other women on this medicine on here that could give me some insight. Do you think that it would be alright to get started in the yard or should I wait until 9:00 when the office is open and give a call? I normally don't ask these kind of questions on a site like this, but maybe someone else has or is going through the same thing. I would appreciate your assistance with this.
