6 days ago · HEART VALVE TRANSPLANT AND SUBSEQUENT ALLERGIES in Heart & Blood Health

@kanaaz Thank you for the info…. I was able to view the first site but the second article was not available. I did talk to one of the nurses for the cardiologist and waiting for her to discuss my concerns with my cardiologist regarding the cannabis for the pain and also the teeth bleeding from the blood thinners. At times the pain is unbearable , not so much from the hip that needs surgery but from the fibromyalgia. The rheumatologist had my complete medical history when she suggested the medical cannabis. I do my best to avoid taking pain pills and I can not take anti inflammatory drugs because of the blood thinner. I can not afford stem cell treatment and the steroid injections aren't working for me as I expected. So, what does one do to ease the pain ?

Last year I had open heart surgery and had my valve replaced with the cow part. Currently I am on Xarelto. I recently saw a rheumatologist to get the okay for hip surgery. The doctor also diagnosed me with severe fibromyalgia and suggested I try the medical marijuana ( not smoking though). I have only tried the liquid and the edibles and have had less pain and able to sleep. Now, I have read that I should be very cautious of the cannabis having past heart conditions.
The cardiologist did approve the CBD Daily which can be purchased anywhere but this spray does not have a true pain reliever or use for anxiety.The cardiologist does not know I have taken the advice of the rheumatologist and started using the cannabis. All of my doctors are from the same hospital and communicate via the computer so I assume that before recommending the cannabis the doctor considered the medications I am taking.
Has anyone been using the edibles and oils that has similar conditions and what was the advise of your cardiologist ?
I would appreciate your response.
Thank you.

Did your insurance cover the costs ? If not may I ask what was the cost for stem cells for both of your knees?

The cardiologist's office just called…all test results from Tuesday are normal and the cardiologist said I can try the CBD spray. Yippee….I asked the nurse about stopping the blood thinner and she said they didn't test for that…..complete opposite of what I was told when I was called to go to the clinic for a blood test. Oh well….half good news is better than none.

That would probably be best but at this time impossible. I am anxious to get the opinion from the rheumatologist . I was never really sick and during a routine yearly check up by my family doctor he had me go to he clinic for an EKG and then a cardiologist. I was in the hospital 15 days as everything that could go wrong did. I had open heart surgery and had the valve replaced with the cow part. I never felt sick and was active but after that surgery the body kinda retaliated…lol The surgeon said I had less than a year to live and was lucky I had the surgery. I'm sure hip surgery is in the near future…….next month I am attending a seminar regarding stem cell and hope that some type of miracle will happen to ease the pain and have some procedure that is less evasive than surgery.

Afternoon Justin. The pharmacist said that although it is topical it is likely some of the spray will get into the blood stream and could increase the effect of the blood thinner. I called the cardiologist yesterday for test results from Tuesday and also about using the CBD spray. No response yet. I have a surgeon that said I could stop taking blood thinners……then the one cardiologist said , NO ! I have to stay on blood thinners the rest of my life…..then the A-fib cardiologist specialist said that maybe in a year I can stop the Xarelto . Three doctors, three different opinions. Same confusing opinions regarding hip surgery. The one cardiologist said go enjoy life and get that hip fixed. The orthopedic surgeon said I was not a good candidate for surgery. One doctor said I had Lupus, another doctor said it's rosacea. I see an rheumatologist this Thursday to see what she has to say. I am so disgusted with the difference of opinions .These Golden Years are not what I expected. Next month I am going to a seminar regarding stem cell for the hip, that should be interesting .

Can Kratom be used if one is on blood thinners and pressure meds?

Thu, Feb 21 3:58pm · CBD Daily Spray and blood thinners in Chronic Pain

A friend told me that CBD Daily has been a miracle topical pain reliever for her back and knees. I ordered the item and this particular CBD does not contain any THC so I was assuming that it is safe to use being on Xarelto ( blood thinner) and high pressure meds. I have steroid injections but wanted to try this after reading so many positive comments from the users. The spray can be purchased on Ebay and the cheapest place to buy was on Walmart. I called the pharmacist and she said that I could not use the spray because of the blood thinner. Ugh ! I am waiting for a call from the cardiologist and hoping for a different opinion and the okay to try it. Has anyone tried this item that is on blood thinners?
