I understand your concern regarding this and I would like to commend you for being sober the last 4 weeks. According to some studies, some alcohol may indeed be protective for risks of DVT. However, too much alcohol like during binge drinking, may have harmful effects. Medications prescribed such as blood thinners are broken down by the liver, the same organ that processes alcohol. If the liver is busy working on breaking down the alcohol, blood thinner medication level in the blood rises, and it increases your bleeding risk. I know it is easier said than done but you need to decide to avoid binge drinking or if possible, alcohol intake. Aside from joining support groups, alternative therapies like acupuncture may also help. It is best that you discuss this also with your attending physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
