Patient : I had an aneurysm burst 1985 age 30 left carotid under brain. Clipped. I am going to have a total knee replacement and have been told I will need to be put on a blood thinner to prevent clots. I don't know if this is safe. I only have residual memory loss and aphasia (sp). Can you give me some direction here?
