ESWT and Blood Thinners

Posted by Kim K. on 4/16/02 at 18:50 (079891)

I recently had a Gastric Bypass and Gall bladder surgery, I suffered a pulmonary embolism post op in my lung, I was put on Coumedin, a blood thinner for 3-6 months to dissolve the clots. I have lost 30 pounds , but I still have my PF pain, especially the right foot. Can I still have ESWT or am I disqualified? I also have high blood pressure what are the contraindications for ESWT?

Hi

You need to be off the coumdin for three days to have ESWT
