Does lovenox (enoxaparin) injections cause headaches?5 days post-op and this was preventative for possible clots.
Temp off Warfarin and on Lovenox (enoxaparin) injections twice a day. Drank on warfarin without issue, can I still have a few beers on the lovenox (enoxaparin)?
No: and I would ask why you aren't directing this question at the prescribers? I am sure if you asked your doctor whether it's ok to drink on Warfarin, s/he would tell you NO in no uncertain terms. Even moderate drinking impairs the metabolism of warfarin, often making you require higher doses, which is if you then lower your drinking may cause a high INR and bleeding risk. It is DANGEROUS. Stop.

Need vein ultrasound: Since you have had a PE in the past and seem to be at risk for DVT, you should have a venous ultrasound to rule out a leg DVT. An ultrasound poses no risk to the fetus.

Yes : Ginger has some "blood thinning" effects, but very unlikely to be clinically significant (lead to bleeding) when consumed as part of a normal diet. The high potency supplements may be associated with a bleeding risk, but not statistically proven. For patient's on Lovenox (enoxaparin) & heparin, ginger may be consumed as part of a normal diet. Enjoy.
