I recently had hip replacement surgery and was on 325 mg. of aspirin twice daily. My bruising and thin skin became so fragile that I tore my skin at the slightest bump. Now I am finished with the aspirin treatment, but my thin skin still bruises easily and tears as well. I look very much like an abused individual. I am 75 years young and like to be active, but my bruising and tearing of skin has limited my activities somewhat. I wear combat sleeves around the house to protect my lower parts of my arms. Help!!!
