My bad for not quoting the earlier post on the topic.

I have no issue with Excel at all. It's a fantastic and flexible tool.

I will try to contact my own doctor's office tomorrow but she usually isn't in on Thursday and I know the clinic will just say to go to the ER and I am not sitting there for 9 hours. I can try the cardiologist's office but he didn't seem to give me much time when I had an appointment.
Laurie,

I bruise too form my aspirin I have to take but not like that and you don't need something to put up with. Listen to those who love you girl and we all do.

I guess I missed reading a page. Reminder to put Clean Glasses on the short list.

Thanks for the App offer. I don't have a cell phone. The one that still cracks me up, is when I see guys, mostly, at the store and they are talking and asking should I get the 12 oz or 16 oz size or this brand or that brand. Guess they don't have smart phones yet either.

Thanks again, everyone.

My GP says that my blood thinner is a moderate dose and shouldn't make be bruise this much (in an average person which I am not ). It is probably the combination of the blood thinner, aspirin and my FM that is making it worse....and because bruises can hurt a bit, this is flaring my fibromyalgia and making it a vicious circle.

She say SHE will contact the cardiologist and see what he wants done. She said this will be quicker than if I try.

In the meantime, I am to be careful and watch the bruising - look for new ones, etc.

While I am still sore, lethargic and multi-coloured, I am not panicked like I was. Thanks for getting me to have it checked.

Just watch for unusual bleeding from other spots. If it was me, I would stop my aspirin. The blood thinner is already doing it's job. Many times doctors forget to stop aspirin when they order a blood thinner. When you talk to your doctor next run that by her.

if you were shorted on a prescription drug, and if that drug was vicoden, would you think it was a deliberate steal, or an honest mistake? then, if you were shorted on another prescription medication in the same exact way, what would be your thinking then? if you knew it was the pharmacist himself/herself that filled both rxes, would that change your perspective? if changing drug stores was not an option, what if anything would you do in order to make sure of a correct count in your future prescriptions?

Cute, Barbara!

So, my GP talked to the cardiologist who said he put me on the aspirin and blood thinner for a reason and I should just suck it up and not worry about the bruising unless I have other bleeding as PF said.

My doctor is fuming! She didn't send me to this guy, the hospital did and while she isn't a cardiologist she said my tests don't seem so bad - that the angiogram is just to be safe and with my other conditions she is worried more about the drugs and the bruising than me having a heart attack. She is going to get me in to see a new cardiologist ASAP. She won't change the medication until she can get the second opinion but if I have other symptoms I am to go off the aspirin first and then contact her office ASAP.

My doctor is really good (she actually phoned me today twice and the cardiologist on her day off because the receptionist thought it was serious enough to contact her). She wants us to photograph the bruising and I need to phone in the morning for an emergency appointment to see her as she is fully booked. They know I will be calling but they have to follow procedure.

This is the second time a doctor has told me to "suck it up". The first one was an orthopedic surgeon who said that no one would touch my knee for 10 years and I would just have to suck it up with the pain and inability to walk. I had the replacement surgery 6 months later by another doctor who when it was done said I couldn't have waited one year let alone 10!

let me add a bit more information to the above scenario: you are short 10 vicoden pills and 10 of another drug that same day. the second drug has no apparent street value to your knowledge. how would you handle this situation?

I always assume an honest mistake, unless it becomes frequent. There must be a manager of some type you can speak to about it. Diversion of medications is the easiest way for someone to steal meds. Maybe I would insist on counting them before leaving the store..
