Hello.. I am on...

Hello.. I am on a blood thinner for AFIB And Friday I told my home monetary test and it was 8.0 I called my cardiologist and he told me to stay off the blood thinner 3 days and test myself again Monday. They asked if I had any bleeding and I said no but this morning when I bruised my teeth there was blood. What should I do? Thank you

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

I don’t know what you mean.... time sesitive?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just a fib and fibromyalgia

I am 71.. it happened when I brushed my teeth a little while ago. There was a light pink blood in the sink when I spit the water out of my mouth. I am on warfarin.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
I understand your concern.
As the bleeding was not much & you are not bleeding now, you can wait & watch.

It is not worrying.
The level of warfarin will go down in 3-4 days usually.
By now its level has come down from the level you had on Friday.

You can rinse the mouth with cold water.

Please avoid hot drinks now.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
