I landed in the hospital after being on Pradax for 2 years with ulcers and needed 5 pints of blood and almost died. I wonder how much my near death experience is worth to them. Almost passed away 6 years prior and almost lost my leg due to what a surgeon that was here in PA from California said was the largest blood clot he thinks ever operated on.They asked for my case history and all the surgery rights so doctors could put my "blood clotting" surgeries in teaching text books. I gladly did to help others. So they saved my life and put me on blood thinners that almost took my life???? Fed up with being so sick. Probably going to land in the hospital again because since feb last year when I originally had to get the 5 pints of blood I AM STILL BLEEDING and not allowed to be put back on blood thinners because I am still bleeding which in turn causes me to be a high risk for blood clots, stroke and heart attacks...Couldn't be any happier. Still waiting to hear back from the lawyers I "hired" to handle my Pradaxa case just an occasional letter stating they're working on my case...Is this really living.
