Blood clots can be deadly.  It would be best for her to be on Plavix to avoid blood clots.  Doctors put patients on Plavix for 6 months to a lifetime, so it is relatively safe.

Hi again,
You answered a question for me the other day. Thank you for the info. Now i have another question. My mother had a shunt put in on the 8th now she is still haveing chest pains the heart center said this could be a big problem. My mother is so BULLHEADED she will not go to the doctor. What could happen if she does not go?
Please be frank because i dont understand doctor talk. Thank you and my god bless you.
