• who had blood clot (lung) pulmonary embolism after DCIS breast cancer?

    Asked by sylvia1963 on Tuesday, November 5, 2013

    who had blood clot (lung) pulmonary embolism after DCIS breast cancer?

    I was diagnosed a month ago.
    Right breast cancer (DCIS already invasive was removed with lumpectomy).
    - 10 days later I did MRI and had to go to MRI biopsies a week after MRI and the cancer DCIS no invasive was confirmed.
    - a week later my biopsies MRI I had blood clot in my lung.

    Now my double mastectomy is delayed.
    I'm taking tamoxifen for breast cancer
    - levanox and coumadin (blood thinners) for blood clot.

    I'm wondering if someone had it or your opinion. Thanks

      Hi; I am 100% positive that natto (a Japanese fermented food) dissolves blood clots. I do not, however, have the slightest clue as to how the food would interplay with the variety of medications you are taking.

      Please speak with your doctor. There are peer reviewed studies showing what natto does. It is a soy product (which is available organically) and I can even show you how to make your own from a purchased batch.

      I speak of food and not a nattokinase pill. Speak with your doctor .. perhaps there is someone on staff of Japanese decent who has a Mom or Grandmom with whom he/she can speak because westerners have rarely tried it or even heard of it.

      It tastes other than great, lol, and looks completely unappealing but I slather it with mustard and have learned to enjoy the strings. I eat it because I am vegetarian and it also contains
      vitamin B-12.

      Best healthy wishes.

      After my 2nd AC Treatment I was diagnosed with a Pulminary Blood Clot. I was put on Luvnox for 7 days then went onto Xaralto for 3 months. Just this week to go yet!!! We chose Xaralto over Coumadin so I did not have to go for weekly blood work or watch what I eat.
