Thanks Bob for putting my mind at rest regarding risk of stroke whilst off anticoagulant for 3 days, as you can see I am still here!! Diarrhoea stopped so doctor is now putting me on apixaban on EPs advice, hope it agrees with me. I have read a lot of posts on forum but I can't find anyone being troubled with diarrhoea with the new anticoagulants, is it just me or has anyone else had the same problems?
I have also felt a lot better in the last few days without the anticoagulants so not looking forward to starting the new one but know I must. Thanks for helping everyone.
