Just had my GP appointment over nose bleeds on Warfarin. Says warfarin does not CAUSE nose bleeds just makes them worse. Has anyone ever had anyone admit to them that it can CAUSE them, why else should I develop nosebleeds ( Three very big ones in two weeks) as I get to an INR of 2.1 when I just do not ever get nose bleeds?
He has said he will look into Apixaban at my request although he has concerns over no antidote and other problems which he did not mention. Shows he does not know anything about it really. although I would rather him check out rather than just go ahead if he has doubts. Asked me to make further appointment in 7 to 10 days but at reception first one available is in 19days. I am to keep on warfarin in the meantime. So I just feel left in limbo and have to just wait and see if any further bleeds.
Makes me think our GP's have a lot to learn over AF.
