It has been a while since I posted but I now need help
I. HAS anyone had an operation while on the NEW blood thinner PLAVIX (which has NO Antidote (unlike Warfarin which does) ??
2. AFIB sufferers ,Please explain your symptoms of AFIB and medications you take..
I was diagnosed with AFIB 2 years ago and .I seem to have no symptoms but EKG says it is AFIB,
I am at my wits end trying to decide whether to risk surgery (DANGER if I have to stop the PLAVIXand DANGER to have an op with AFIB (even a local one ( unless given a drug to bridge the gap ..still risky with AFIB...because of an operation and possible bleeding)
They switched me from Xarelto to PLAVIX a milder blood hinner
Thetyswitched me from the first NEW blood thinner Xarelto which is expensive and I think it caused a himotoma in my mastctomy breast ( which was reconstructed 12 years ago nowt ( NOW has hardened now and needs to be replaced BUT most dcctors rs AND myself are nervous to do even if taken off the new blood thinner Blood thinners .
So to ramble but I am a bit pannicked doctors have different opinions, as to the dangers of operating in my breast to remove the rock hard implant with a himotoma (Blood collection around the implant ) needs operation even a liocal may bleed excessively and NO antidote on this drug PLAVIX (unlike Warfarin , which Does)
