I AM desperate
PLEASE PLEASE someone help me!!! Smitty where are you, Sharon I need you and VAlerie please say anything that is going to make me smile. I have a story ,it will take a moment but here goes. I was given the wrong meds at the pharmacy, I was very ill through out the night and ended up at the ER the following day at noon and was there for 14 hrs. I am ok now and there was no long term effects from the medication I was given. Here comes the problem.WHile in the er after many tests they found that I am with child! I am 43yrs old. I was trying to have a child ,I have 2 ,22 and 21, but we wanted one more but I was diagnosed with a brain tumor 5 yrs ago. I am gonig good the tumor is small and under control.So we decided that we should not continue to pursue having another baby. I continued to have other problems but aa` of now my biggest problem is the cuomadin I am on for the blood clots I had in my lungs. I have been told I will be on the blood thinner for life. I was told at the er to stop the coumadin because it causes birth defects. I then saw my ob-gyn doc. I was begged to go back on my meds. I just can't do it. I need info but don't have the energy to look for it. I need to know what ,if any are the consequences of coming off the coumidan cold turkey. Is that a problem? I know the risks of getting clots again but I was told there are alternatives, does anyone know of any? My pcp doc says to get another opinion with respect to the ob/gyn doc. He thinks `we can all work together somehow ,I have been his patient for 7 yrs and he knows how much I want a baby. Am I being unreal should I just give in to the fact that I will not hold this baby to term ? And can someone help me cut through all the pros and cons of this. I know that there is an issue w/ my pm too. My inr was 1.5 before I stopped taking my coumadin so I imagine it is lower now, which means my blood is "thicker". Does that affect my pm ? SO many questions I know but I have been crying non stop since friday .James I need you ,I do not understand such a God that would give me a hope of a child only to cruely take it away. I am a woman of faith but I must admit throughout all of these past 6 yrs. this has been my lowest point of despair. Thank you truly for all your time and any help you all can give me . I am desperate.
