Female, 40 - 49 years, Australasia, not pregnant
Symptoms: I am post 6 weeks bilateral TKR. I have a small cluster of PE's in my left lung, a risk that is associated with a TKR. To combat this problem, I have been taking Rivaroxaban 20mg in the morning. My period this time was extremely heavy ( 1 super tampon on the hour every hour and using a pad for back up as sometimes it was under the hour). My period was heavy from the Saturday to Thursday (6days) and then heavy from Thursday to Saturday. On Sunday it had eased to normal light. On Monday (yesterday) it began again, extremely heavy again. This time I was passing large black jelly blobs of blood each time I went to the toilet. This has continued today as well. I also have a small constant pain on the left side of my left breast. It is a nulling pain, it is not causing me to have panadol, but I know it is there. Is this all part of taking the Rivaroxaban? Has anyone else experienced this while taking Rivaroxaban? The only other drug I take is Swisse Cranberry for reocurring UTI's.
