Hello, I am new to this forum. Last fall, at 38 weeks pregnant with my first child, I was hospitalized with a DVT. I am scheduled to come off coumadin within the next two months and am terrified to do so, although, keeping my INRs stable has been challenging at times. Although it is not my Doctors' practice to do so, we'll be ultrasounding in the spring. I have been wearing the stockings daily for the past five months as well. Needless to say, I have had a really difficult time moving on from the event. Any advice for dealing with the mental aspect of stopping coumadin?
