Patient

Q: Hey, Im a 22 year old male, ive had 4 open heart surgeries since the age of 3. I have been on the blood thinner Warfarin. What i am wondering... is there any supplements i can take to help me get into better shape while working out. such as Creatine, protein powders, (i believe i cant take any NO products (Nitric Oxide)).
if you can think of anything that would help.
