Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. The fact that your father is on warfarin is a concern for us. This can increase your fathers risk for internal bleeding, which may be the cause of this the bleeding that you have observed. It is imperative that you take him to be evaluated by his doctor, to determine the source o f this bleed as well as to assess if he has a concomitant urinary tract infection which is causing his frequent urination.
