I am new to this group but not to DVTs. I have had 5 since 1995 with 3 of those being while on coumadin. My last one was in October. My levels have become harder and harder to keep control of and I am on 10mg daily. My dr has taken me off of all vegetables and most of the foods higher in K and restricted how much of anything else I can have. I guess my question is has anyone on here failed coumadin and had to go onto lovenox long term? The diet is creating other issues with lacking other vitamins in my diet. Also I am seen by the VA and recently moved from Tucson, AZ to Oklahoma City and the Drs seem to have conflicting advise. In october I was actually D dimer negative and still had a new active clot per their method of testing and here they refuse to scan unless you are d dimer positive, also was told not to wear compression stockings as this could push an ndiagnosed clot to the lungs and here they want me to wear them. I am so confused wish I could find great dr to handle this but don't know where to look. Any help or ideas would be gretly appreciated. Thanks and sorry this got so long.

I was prescribed 3 different medications to...
