Hi - I'm new here - had a stroke 6 weeks ago and told it was a-fib. No advice from doctors so did an internet search and came across left atrial appendage closure. Apparently they've been doing this for about 15 years and when it's done you can come off anticoagulants. This would be great as I've already moved from apixaban to riveroxaban due to side effects and after only 5days on riveroxaban I feel terrible. Does anyone know anything about this? I've asked to be referred to Papworth as they seem to be the experts on this.
