    I am having a terrible time with blood clots. I have had 2 right basilic superficial and now sup left calf AND DVT of distal perineal.

    Thoughts? I am currently Coumadin 12.5mg and therapeutic INR

      I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lungs (pulmonary embolisms) in May, I currently take Fragmin injections daily and was told I will continue them while I am on chemo. Other than the shots I am a symptomatic, can't tell I have them except they show up on my scans.

      I had blood clots in my lungs from taking Avastin, which is no longer approved for breast cancer. I was also on Abraxane and told my oncologist to take me off of the Avastin because I did not want to deal with the blood clots. My tumors still shrank and I saw no difference, except fewer side effects. Talk to your oncologist about lowering your dose, or alternative chemo.
