That sounds hopeful. My oncologist also told me that a asprin a day may also help prevent colon cancer.

As has been said the low dose ones (81) taken daily help your heart also. I believe it thins out the blood and helps it flow.

What about if you take blood thinners? I would be hesitant to use both. I was told at my transplant evaluation that I would be on small dose aspirin after surgery and would have to switch back to Coumadin from Eliquis too. It is easier to monitor the levels with an INR test.

Fay, I think the answer would be, follow your doc's orders.

Yes, aspirin is not good with a blood thinner.

I read the entire article and just wasn't impressed by the success rate they listed - it may have been statistically significant but it was less than 1% improvement - while I value every percent of lung function I have, I don't think it would be worth killing my stomach by taking aspirin

Many people already take a .81mg aspirin as a preventative for heart issues. If it help with my breathing, that's fine. I just had a spirometry yesterday for the first time in four years and my FEV1 was a point higher than it was in 2000 when I was first diagnosed. If the baby aspirin I take daily had anything to do with that, I'm all for it!

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.
