Pacemaker, a Defibrillator, aortic valve replacement...Several ablations, and I go to cardiac rehab 3 days a week

This would be beneficial as I bleed and bruise at the slightest bump. Anyone have experienced the use of… read more
I was on warfarin early on with my heart disease (yes it was a pain in the butt )in 2001 I had a mitral valve repair.then I asked my Dr if I could switch to Xarelto. Then I was on eliquise for a long time. When I head about the watchmen, I was eligible and had it done. While on those 2 no more poking to get my INR..Now I am on plavix and a baby aspirin for a bit and only be on plavix. A lot of people stay on warfarin because it’s the cheapest of them all, My feelings are you gotta do what you gotta do!! Have a blessed week stay healthy and safe🙏🙏
I bruise at the least touch. Plavix want take me off.
Yes I bruise easily myself. Now I need to find a new Cardiologist. Have an appointment in May . My Drs I have now are from Ma. But my insurance is from Rhode Island. Happy Weekend .
I have never heard of this device. I have been on blood thinners 8 plus years and still have issues with clotting. I take 20 mg of Xarelto daily. I know all to well about the easily bleeding and bruising. Pray all goes well for you and everyone else.
Gentlemen I suggest you google your tablets and see the side effects of them, you might see why you are feeling so bad, I was on simvastatin's for 25 years. I have hypertension, cholesterol, and they say I have A Fib my tablets were becoming more and more expensive each day and I was feeling worse and worse, I sent my CARDIOLOGIST an email telling him, I am going the natural route with Ginger, Garlic, Turmeric, Cayenne Chilies, Cinnamon, Honey and Lemon.
I was taking 8 different tablets. I have always had joint pain, upset tummy, hot flushes every 5 hours, all these have gone I feel Fantastic. All these things work for me, and they are a 1/5 the price of the tablets I am taking. IT IS SEVEN MONTHS THAT I HAVE HAD NO PAIN IN MY JOINTS. I am not a doctor or a cardiologist, I have researched all these things I am taking and its awesome to tell people about my personal experience on all these natural herbs. I was at the doctors on the 18th of Jan 2023 we did a stress ECG, and they took blood for 5 tests not sure what they were for, (cholesterol, liver function, kidney function etc.) but everything was perfect. ECG my heart was good, resting heart rate good, I have made an appointment to see my Cardiologist on the 7th of February 2023 where he has a sonar test he will be doing, ECG as well.
Bring it on
I will let you know all the details of this visit everybody stays safe god bless.
