My anticoagulant journey was as a result of a DVT following major orthopaedic surgery to my right knee in 1990 (Cruciate ligament reconstruction). Regular DVT's followed, complicated by three episodes of PE.
The chronic pain in my knee has resulted in MRI scan and a bone scan - both indicative of a degenerative changes of the joint, which cannot account for the severity of my pain.
Subsequent process of investigation has revealed that Apixaban (2.5mg twice a day) may be the cause of my joint pain.
It might help others who may be experiencing similar symptoms to have an awareness of this potential side effect.
I have made an appointment to see my GP next week to establish an alternative NOAC (not Rivaroxabin) or a potential return to Warfarin.
Anyone else in a similar position?
