I have been diagnosed with a blood clot in the apex of the left ventricle of my heart. Of course, I am now on WARFARIN. INR tests show blood viscosity @ 2.1 - good range.
To date, there are NO symptoms associated with this malady.

Dear Anon_28904,

This is something you need to discuss with your doctor(s). Your doctor has your history, can do an exam, look at tests and results, and give you his/her opinion.

If you are not comfortable with your current doctor, I suggest seeing another doctor for a second opinion.

Yours in health,

Byroney
