Risk stroke from clot or hemorrhagic stroke
My mother is in a catch 22. She has chronic AFib and was temporarily taken off Coumadin while getting treatment for colon cancer. They kept her on the Plavix and put her on Aspirin instead of Coumadin. While on the Plavix & Aspirin, she had a bleeding stroke. She's OK except for vision loss. They put her back on the Coumadin a few months later even though she had just had the bleed. Her INR went to greater than 7. Since then, she has been on the Plavix only and needs to make a decision about the Coumadin. Without Coumadin, she risks stroke from the Afib throwing a clot, and, with the Coumadin, she is at risk for another, possibly worse, hemorrhagic stroke. Of course, none of the doctors want to take a stand either way, so its her decision. I realize there is no definitive answer. Just thought maybe others out there were in similar situation and could offer some advice.
