I would agree, that here are other ways to help prevent blood clots other than coumadin. First continue to walk her as often as possible. Next request support stockings to help increase circulation in her legs. Next request that Low Molecular Heparin is given through her IV. This has much less chance of causing a bleed and will be very beneficial in reducing the incident of her developing a blood clot. The baby aspirin 81 mg, is sufficient, she does not need to increase this, especially at her age. Also continue the Carvedilol at her current dose.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your mother's medical problem(s) are resolved soon and she feels better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
