Correct: Vegetables such as kale, spinach, turnip greens, broccoli, parsley, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and chard should not be eaten in large amounts due to their high content of vitamin K – a nutrient that can interfere with the effectiveness of your blood-thinning medication. Alcohol and cranberry juice should be avoided also. Good luck

Yes : We have to weigh the risk and benefit. It seems like the risk of recurrrnt stroke is high here . Suggest to stop Aspirin . This definitely needs a consultant for decision making
