Nothing was noted wrong with my labs, but I had severe bruising. I'd often have bruises on my forearms the size of 50 cent pieces. I take 4 small vitamin K supplements daily for this reason. The bruising is much much better. I'd have these bruises before with not remembering any arm trauma. If I bump my arm hard not, there will be a surface bruise for a few days, but those "sponteneous bruises" are either now negilgent or smaller than a dime in size, and far fainter in color. My surgoen's bariatric nurse suggeste this as a solution--vitamin K helps with blood clotting. This may be why you are bruising. It's not an expensive fix either. I get the cheap vitamin K supplements at Puritan Pride Vitamins. They often have buy1--get 2 free, or but 2 get 3 free sales. I just got a shipment of herbal laxatives, papaypa enzyme and an Acai cleanse my surgeon recommended for my wife. DAVE
