Customer Question

I'm on Coumadin and fell a couple of hours ago. My butt took the brunt of the fall but I think my head hit as well. My neck is sore. Should I go to the Ed to get a catscan?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You are at risk of bleeding in the brain due to the coumagdin effect.

This is hard to judge without a scan.

Hence better to go to the ER to rule that out with a scan.

You should take rest avoid any physical exertion.
Best wishes,
