I spoke to the head Dr at my surgery today and he said he did not say for me not to take rivaroxaban, he said as my stroke risk was only 2.2% he would rather me be on aspirin because of my heart attack in 2007. (He did tell me to stop the rivaroxaban)
However, although I am not against taking anticoagulants my main concerns are
1- I have an evar stent in my aorta due to a AAA and am more concerned about that developing an endoleak causing my aneurysm to rupture because if that happens I have no chance of survival at all.
2- rivaroxaban has no antidote so if I am unlucky enough to get a serious bleed that's me done for as well.
My Dr has told me it is up to me to take the rivaroxaban but stated that I MUST take 75mg aspirin and 1.5mg of bisoporal daily and there is an increased risk of bleeding by taking aspirin and rivaroxaban together.
Does anybody know of a NOAC that has an antidote please.
It seems to me that I am toast no matter which route I take.
Thank you all for listening and your patience with me.
