Does Coumadin increase chances for a bleed when attaching sensors. My coumadin is in control…but has anyone had a bleed…i begin pump in 3 weeks. Greetings to all.
Sandy, I'm on Xarelto, Plavix and Aspirin and generally have no problems. On the rare occasion I bleed more than a drop or two a little pressure for a couple seconds usually fixes me right up.
I have had platelet counts in the low 20's and never stopped wearing my sensor. I also take a 82mg Aspirin. I have had some sensors in the past 7 years that where a little bloody at first but they seemed to work as advertized, and I have never had one that just would not stop bleeding and had to be removed.
