i had a thread on here but it has mysteriously disappeared!!
anyway my daughter( age 19) had an asd closed this week using a patch from her pericardium..
my questions are
1. can anything go wrong with this type of patch? (she seems concerned and i want to allay her fears)
2. she has been told that warfarin needs to be taken for 3 months. she is still in hospital as her inr level seems to be very slow in rising. why might this be? it is currently 1.35 if that helps.
3.any drawbacks or problems with warfarin
