Diagnosed with AF last December. DC cardioversion (successful) in March. I have not seen Cardiologist apart from 5 minutes during a ward round when I was admitted to hospital. I received a letter this morning from the Cardiologist, which states "following DC cardioversion EGC shows her to be in sinus rhythm. Her CHADsVASC score is 2 so she could now STOP warfarin and go onto aspirin 75mg prophylactically".
I'm really worried about being taken off warfarin (it has become my protective friend) especially with a CHADs score of 2. My question is can my prescription for warfarin be stopped, or can I request to continue it? Before receiving this letter I requested a referral to an EP and am still waiting to hear.
Many thanks in advance for any advice.
