AMD and Blood Thinners
(Traverse City, Michigan)
I started seeing crooked lines in spreadsheets at work, so went to the optometrist. He said I have AMD. I have an appointment with a Retina Specialist in about ten days. I’m anxiously waiting for that appointment to see what my next steps are.
I had two stents put in my LAD artery in January and am now on blood thinners - Brilinta. My questions are ... any thoughts that that (blood thinner) might have started my AMD? And will that be a problem if they want to give me injections for AMD if I have the Wet kind?
Just wondering if anyone has been in this crazy situation. 63 years old, female, and work with spreadsheets a lot - so I’m worried about that in the future too.
