Hi! Stasis or venous ulcer on a varicose vein or any other ulcer does not heal well due to either poor blood supply or underlying diabetes. Hence the origin of the ulcer has to be determined. Duplex ultrasound of the calf is done to rule out varicose veins and atherosclerosis and blood sugar tested. It is treated by applying warm wet dressings, bandaging, exercise, and elevation of the affected leg. Complete healing may take several weeks or months.
Is there an alternative treatment to omeprazole for gastric ulcer? I have adverse reaction to PPI's but need to heal my ulcer. My biopsy was Hpylori negative but have been on aspirin therapy for several years.
To me this is just maintenance not finding/treating the underlying cause therefore the ulcer will continue to recur. I honestly believe the ulcer is related to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> mum is taking because she suffers from so many of the side affects listed, but every time we tell the doctors we get the same line "it's not the medication". If it's not the medication then why don't some of them try to find out what is causing them.
Hiatal hernia, gallstones, ulcer, stomach... As for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span>, it has the potential for many bad side effects, but to my memory they are all in the areas of bleeding problems. The list if side effects is widely available, and a search on warfarin and/or Coumindin on this forum will surely give a lot of information on that medication. I have taken 5 mg of warfarin daily for about 10 years, I can not associated it with any pain problems.
That caveat out of the way, I don't personally think your father's troubles are due to his being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span>. First of all, there is a bigger safety range for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> than you may be aware of. At the professional workshop that I attended, we were told by the presenter that the anticoagulation properties of warfarin are most likely present down to an INR of about 1.6. The reason doctors don't like their patients to go below 2.0 (or in some cases 2.5) is to provide a cushion of safety.
Can it be used with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span>? I am using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> because I had atrial fibrillation. On last week I had cardioversion but must use warfarin at least for one to three extra months.
9 Months ago I had a DVT, Which broke off and became a PE. The DVT was in my Left Knee, and after 3 months of using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> and several Ultrasounds and VQ Scans Later I was diagnosed as Fine and no more need for the warfarin.

For some reason I always feel cold .Do any of you? I have two leaky valves and was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> then aspirin but was taken off them as I have a stomache ulcer and had a bleed, vomiting blood etc. I declined to have the electric shock treatment on my heart as there is a morbidity rate, and have been ok on the drugs. I get tingling in my hands, do any of you who have A/F suffer this please?

I know that Motrin interact with blood thinners like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> and coumarin as well as some peptic ulcer disease treatments like cimetidine and ranitidine. The best thing is to discuss the option of changing your medication with your rheumatologist. Tell him/her about your cardiologist’s warning so he/she can pick up your ideal treatment. As you can guess, suggesting alternative analgesics in the forum would be too hazardous in your case.
I have had 2 ablations for AVNRT SVT tachycardia last year, May and July at UPMC. After the second procedure I developed a PE. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> for 6 months and then in Jan 07 I stopped warfarin. At the same time, due to daily aspirin and severe anxiety from heart issues, I developed gastric and duodenal ulcers. I went on protonix and was fine in a few weeks. In October 06 I had more abdominal symptoms, had upper GI to reveal small ulcer. I took more protonix and was ok again.
This herb may be contraindicated in individuals with active bleeding (eg, peptic ulcer, intracranial bleeding). Use with caution in individuals with a history of bleeding, hemostatic disorders, or drug-related hemostatic problems. It should not be used if you are taking anticoagulant medications, including warfarin, aspirin, aspirin-containing products, NSAIDs, or antiplatelet agents (eg, ticlopidine, clopidogrel, dipyridamole). I am not sure of what other potential drug interactions.

She has also been diagnoised with 100% blocked cartoid on the right and 75% blockage on the left and a 6m anuerysm at the base of her brain. She is not on blood thinners because of the bleeding ulcer. Once they get her stomach heeled they intend to put her back on them. Her confusion is getting much worse but yesterday she asked me to remove the oxygen and take her home. My mother has a living will and watching her deteriorate daily is killing me.
I am a 47 year old male. For 8 years I have been getting a number of symptoms that have grown both in number and severity. I get an extremely sharp pain shooting down my left arm from the armpit to the end of my thumb and forefinger which could last up to about 10 secs (I call it the stinger) I still get this but less frequently.

I have a leg full of clots that won't break up and go away. They have been treated for 3 years with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span>, lovenox and cumadin. All to no avail. My gp doctor doesn't seem to have the knack to getting the INR levels stable. I've been at levels of 6 and 6.5 many times leading to ER transfusions. Last week it was 1.1 I'm worried because the symptoms are so much worse lately.

Return to top Carafate Tablets and Suspension are used for the short-term treatment (up to 8 weeks) of an active duodenal ulcer; Carafate Tablets are also used for longer-term therapy at a reduced dosage after a duodenal ulcer has healed. Carafate helps ulcers heal by forming a protective coating over them.
1) chronic stress, 2) alcohol consumption being too high too frequently (often this is a reaction to stressful environments), 3) heliobacter pylori infection, which may also mean ulceration of the stomach, 4) peptic ulcer and/or duodenal ulcer, 5) weight, 6) pregnancy, and 7) incompetent sphyncter muscle at top end of stomach - sometimes this is from chronic consumption of alcohol, sometimes it's inherited, sometimes medication, and sometimes from hiatus hernia; 8) everything else that's left o
The procedure (July 25th) caused a PE which has since resolved and I am on warfarin now for the next few months.
Is his doctor aware of the history of a bleeding ulcer that your post mentions? Has the ulcer completely healed? I certainly would make sure the doctor is aware of this. I know in my case, when taking the Plavix I couldn't drink. I love to drink wine and while on the Plavix one glass would go straight to my head. I felt drunk. and, yes,the bruising is terrible. I walk around with purple marks on my arms all the time.
In a large, case-control study of elderly patients, those who used corticosteroids and NSAIDs concurrently had an estimated relative risk (RR) for peptic ulcer disease and GI hemorrhage of 14.6 compared to those who used neither. Oral corticosteroid use was associated with a doubling of the risk (estimated RR = 2.0), but the risk was confined to those who also used NSAIDs.

I really have two questions. I have had my last two angiograms at the Cleveland Clinic. I have 6 stents and some ischemia. My LVEDP was 24 mmhg each time. My E/A ratio is low as shown on an echo. I have been diagnosed with Diastolic Failure, but due to my general symptoms of heart failure (congestion, total fatigue and SOB and angina) and an enlarged left atrium I believe I have Diastolic Heart Failure.
“prolonged use of drugs, such as the anticoagulant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> and antibiotics that destroy normal intestinal bacteria; decreased flow of bile to the small intestine from obstruction of the bile duct or bile fistula; malabsorption of vitamin K due to sprue, pellagra, bowel resection, ileitis, or ulcerative colitis; chronic hepatic disease, with impaired response of hepatic ribosomes to vitamin K; and cystic fibrosis, with fat malabsorption.
I have been getting this pain in the right side of my neck. I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> lifelong following a dvt already so this is worrying.

A bit relieved to hear others have been having the same for a while with no severe consequences.
