Blood clots are NOT something to fool around with. They tend to break loose and then lodge somewhere else. If somewhere else is a lung, you've got serious but fixable problem. Even more serious is a clot in the brain. That's called a stroke and recovery is iffy at best. Blood thinner is a precaution against future clots. Warfrin is the standard treatment, but it's difficult to keep the dosage regulated. There are other options...
Chuck - why do you have to stay away from leafy vegetables? This is the first time I've ever heard a doc say to do this. Usually they say eat more! Does it interact with your meds? Does it help thin your blood too much?
