Coming off the Coumadin in two weeks
My hematologist is stoping my coumadin in two weeks to finish the genetic tests that couldn't be done while on the meds. I'm a little anxious since every little ache pain and headache sends me into a panic attack bu I am excited too. The side effects are horrible. I'm so tired of having a couple good days with lots of energy then I'm drained, sore and short of breath the next two. My chest muscles get so tired some days especially when I drive alot that day. It feels like I've lost so much muscle even though I'm still very active. Has anyone else had similar side effects?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
