A blood clot in the eye could certainly be related to the coumadin, (warfarin) however. Be sure they are following your Coumadin (warfarin) levels closely, and follow your eye doctors recommendations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When : When they are very fresh--less than two weeks old--clots can often be dissolved or mechanically broken down using a variety of techniques. However, these approaches are usually contraindicated in a patient who has recently had surgery. With older clots, like yours, blood thinners like Coumadin (warfarin) are the usual approach. A patient who develops a lot of clots in multiple areas of the body needs to be evaluated for an abnormality in the clotting system. Have you been seen by a hematologist? If not, that would probably be an appropriate next step for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
