If you and your spouse are invited somewhere, how do you decide if you are going? I have to use a scooter. Walking is extremely difficult. I want to know if I'm being a cry-baby in having to stay at home. Is this normal? Please be as specific as possible.

Are Plavix/blood thinners needed 3 years after azygos stent?

IR who performed venoplasty 3 yrs ago put a stent in my azygos and recommended I take Plavix forever. I can no longer take Plavix or aspirin, and I won't take Coumadin as an alternative. Is there any reason I can't be off all RX drugs at this point? I've never had blood clots or any other blood related problem, and I eat a heart-healthy diet.
