Just wondering if there is a reason this is happening due to stopping Plavix? The last several months, medical personnel can't get a blood draw from her port.
Yes, there could be a large connection between the ports being closed and Plavix. Plavix is an anti-platelet medication and stops the blood from clotting, once your mother came off it the blood clots began to form and close the port. I have been on Plavix for over two years because of my stent and where it is located and I can not afford a clot to form on it and there for can never stop taking Plavix.
