was discovered on Monday whilst having a TOE under GA before 4th ablation. Procedure was aborted and I am now on increased warfarin for 4-6 months before proceeding again. My EP seems to blame the Dabigatran that I was on for a few months before although all the reports say that it is better at preventing strokes. I am thinking that it could have formed in the 7 days that I was not fully anti coagulated because of the change over. Either way, I now feel that I am living with a time bomb and I have not a hope in hell of getting travel insurance for our trip to the Far East in January. Also my GP will not allow self testing. Life has gone belly up yet again.
Anybody have an experience like this?
