Need info
« on: April 02, 2008, 04:59:59 am »
 I am married to a man recently diagnosed with an AC. 2.7 I believe is the size. Saw Dr at Mass Eye & Ear who believes watch & wait is best due to AN location. My husband has also suffered a stroke and is left with partial blindness and 2 blood clots in his head for which he is closley monitored on Coumadin. My concern is of bleeds. What are bleeds? What bleeds? and would coumadin enhance those bleeds? I am very frightened and my husband doesnt care to talk about these things (probably because he knows how freaked out I get) Can anyone help me with my concerns?

I don't know anything about bleeds, unfortunately.  Your husband definitely seems to present with a complicated health history that needs to be closely monitored.

I just wanted to say that I think you are in good hands at Mass Eye and Ear.  Which doctor are you seeing there?  I was treated by Dr. McKenna, and was well served by him.
