today i saw my consultant at hospital,thinking i was having blood tests taken for genetic disorders as we arranged on the phone.when i got there and asked about them he said he would have to find out what tests are done nowadays,so we couldnt do them today??surely he should know?he felt my calf (the clot was in my pelvic area) and said the clot had gone and i could come off warfarin.i said could i have a scan and he said no.i said in that case i wanted to stay on warfarin longer as im not convinced the clot has gone and he said if i got another DVT i would be on warfarin for life.i said i didnt want another and he told me they are not life threatening???he still doesnt think my clot was caused by the pill and said for 90percent of people they never do find a cause.is it just me over reacting or is this man a complete idiot?do you think i should write a letter of complaint to the hospital?i took a day off work thinking i was going to have these blood tests done and it was a total waste of time going there
