The Blame Game

Was Bret Michaels on the blood thinner Coumadin? He probably was, since it is routinely prescribed after surgery. Doctors say his appendectomy was not related to the stroke, but if he was taking Coumadin, that would explain why he hemorrhaged less than two weeks after the operation.

Count on the medical establishment to bury this all-too-common, albeit disastrous medical error and shift the attention to a previous head injury, his diabetes, or his "lifestyle".
