Moms been on lovenox (enoxaparin) for 2 yrs now. She has serious bruising on abdomen which causes her pain. Any way to minimize the bruising?

Moms been on lovenox (enoxaparin) for 2 yrs now. She has serious bruising on abdomen which causes her pain. Any way to minimize the bruising?

Not really: Lovenox (enoxaparin) is an anticoagulant. It leads to easy bruising, and the injection itself leads to bruising. The only thing that can be changed is the medication (ask if there is an alternative to Lovenox that is not injected). ...Read more

LMWH: You should be on treatment doses of Lovenox (enoxaparin) at 1mg/kg SQ twice daily if you have suffered a recent DVT and have lupus anticoagulants and use Lovenox (enoxaparin) as a bridge to warfarin. It is normal to feel injection site pain with treatment doses of Lovenox (enoxaparin). I instruct my patients to give "Lovenox (enoxaparin) in the love handles" and alternate sides, in addition to putting ice at the site for 5 min before injecting ...Read more

Had knee arthroscopic synovectomy on right knee to remove PVNS. Next 2 dressing I had small red, bruise under the skin. Today it's spreaded x10.

Had knee arthroscopic synovectomy on right knee to remove PVNS. Next 2 dressing I had small red, bruise under the skin. Today it's spreaded x10.

Call your surgeon: This is not a sign of PVNS recurrence. This also does not sound like any problem with the surgery or anything dangerous. It is most likely bleeding from the surgery coming to the surface. You should still call your surgeon. This is the best person to tell you if it is OK to ignore or needs to be checked. ...Read more

Can you tell me about arthroscopy for torn miniscus?

Good operation: Of all arthroscopic operations, the one with the best and most predictable outcome is meniscal surgery. However, if your meniscus is torn, it may be a heralding sign of advancing degenerative change within the knee. There is no knee operation associated with a quicker recovery then a partial meniscectomy. Meniscus repair surgery takes a longer time to recover, but preserves the meniscus. ...Read more

Dr. Allen Lu Dr. Lu
2 doctors agreed:

Depends: The hip arthroscopy is still young. Depending on the expertise of your surgeon, and the amount of work to be done, the hip arthroscopy can be minimally painful or can be very uncomfortable for months. When we reshape the bone and repair the labrum, it is a good amount of surgery (though less than an open surgery). If we just look or clean up, it is quite benign. ...Read more
