They should be testing your blood regularly to make sure the dose of coumadin you're on is appropriate and still working properly (and not too well, either).

I think if you are having any concerns, you should totally check in with your doc asap.

I to have had DVTs Clots in my lungs as well .. I am tested weekly do the fact that my inrs are never in the 2.5 to 3 range like they should be I will go from as low as a 1.1 to a 9.7 for no reason.  I am a creature of habbit as to what I eat and do not add new meds.

You know your body best, trust in your instinct. if need keep a gernal so you and your doctor can go over it.

This is your life and is better to ask questions now instead of when you can't
