... Mitral valve. I almost died from the infection. I'm sick of taking Coumadin every night, 4mg - 2mg On Wednesdays. I have a PT/INR drawn every 2 weeks and my range is 2.5-3.5 INR. It is a bad drug that has almost killed me twice. I have no choice, the only times I do off it is for surgery. Then I use Lovenox. I am really having a hard time with this, and I need help, support, moral support. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind. I need someone to talk to besides the doctors. I need help
