This is a 2-parter, I’m new to this so I hope that’s okay!
First - I was diagnosed with a Pulmonary Embolism 4 months ago after being on the contraceptive patch for 3 weeks (this is what they said was the cause as I’m only 28 and have no family history of it). A month ago the hospital did some follow up tests and said it was gone but I’m still getting severe pain so they’ve kept me on Apixaban - does anyone else still get pain after it’s gone?
Second - Since I’ve been on Apixaban I’ve avoided alcohol as I had a bad experience when I first drank on them. Last night I had a work do so I decided to have a small drink (gp said this was okay) and I had a 1 & 1/2 glasses of wine. That’s pretty much the last thing I remember as I blacked out - has this happened to anyone else? Is that normal?
