. I am 43 years old, and never had DVT, 6 weeks ago i was rushed to a&e with severe breathlessness, and d dimer showed riak of a clot, ct scan confirmed bilateral pulmonary embolisms.There is history of clots causing strokes/ heartattacks in my family, do I have any say if I want to stay on these rivaroxaban? I just think the risk of me coming off some sort of a/c is too high, especially as I had no warning and it will more than likely happen again. Since being on rivaroxaban I have felt better than I have in years, no backache, no excessive sweating, no shortness of breath. So I really do not want to be taken off this medication and just left to go it alone and risk it happening again, I was very lucky this time ... I might not be next time
