What exactly is tp/inr? I have been on lovanox 60 mg and 20 mg coumadin (warfarin). And today it was 4, 6. Usually around 1.5 have pancreatitis and blood clots

In brief: Prothrombin time

Pt and inr international normalized ratio are the personal chemical measures of response to coumadin-warfarin as a measure of the anticoagulation effects for example inr 2.
5 - 3.5 is desired for a DVT or valve patient!
