Hi all there 3 weeks i was admitted to hospital with a blood clot on lung since than i have been getting injections of inohep in tummy. anyway docs said i coundnt have epidural because of these injections but i read on internet that you can come off injections around due day. basically i just wanted to know if anyone else in same situation or knew of anyone who was on these injections and did it effect delivery. thanks

God, poor you goldie, hope you are doing okay now. I don't know the answer to your question, but didn't want to not answer. Have you tried the pregnancy forum on magicmum.com?

A friend of ours had blood clots in her lungs during her pregnancy, and I know she had the epidural, but I don't know what she was taking for the blood clots. I had thought it was Warfarin or Heparin (I thought one of these was safe during pregnancy). Inohep is probably a form of Heparin is it ? There must be a way that you can get the epidural...you should definitely talk it through with your consultant/gp.....

Here's a fact sheet I found you can download as a PDF and print off. Might help. www.thrombosis-charity.org.uk/Thrombosi ... tsheet.pdf

Just realized that factsheet is a lot about clots in the leg. Found this about clots in the lungs: http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/fac ... bolism.htm
