A little late to the party here, but I have been on warfarin for close to 20 years(pulmonary embolism). I don't know how much one is at risk of bleeding out if injured, but after a crash, the ER doc told me that the real danger is bleeding on the brain if you bang your head even moderately. With or without a helmet.

I still ride, but pay attention a bit more now.

hard to be safe with idiot cagers around, almost got it today by a new ford truck.
last dec i had 3 stints put in and on 4 meds at least for a year with the new type of stint and then i will get off of them, first time ever having medical issues.
i will say this, i did cut myself shaving and bled like a stuck hog for 2 hours. i tried everything from direct pressure to duct tape, no dice. i finally used a hair dryer and super glue to clot it. does it stop me, well to be honest, nope.
if you enjoy riding, hard not too, just have to cut back (yea, right?) anywho i try to be extra careful especially in the shop as any nick is a trip to the nurse in the house and there i get a heavy dose of medicine and yep, it ain't pills, that i can handle.
so ride with care and carry a bottle of super glue!

In 2012, I had my Aortic valve replaced with a Carbon and Stainless mechanical valve and I've been taking Warfarin ever since. In 2015, I retired from work, gave up my apartment and lived on the road for the next year and a half. I now live in Cincinnati and I don't own a car. My Roadster is my transportation. I wear reasonable gear; A helmet, jacket and gloves and riding pants when the weather is cold. Like others have said, I'm going to ride until my time is up. I refuse to sit quietly and wait for death to come get me.
