Last week I had to be taken by ambulance to A&E with a severe nosebleed. Despite the doctors there, and internal nose packing, I was still bleeding two days later, and I was told that I had lost over 3 units of blood. Eventually the flow was controlled sufficiently to perform a cauterisation. I was in hospital for 5 days, and felt OK when they discharged me, but now I am home I feel exhausted, and often seem to "run out of breath" when speaking. Could this be due to the anaemia that has resulted?
While I was in hospital they gave me a Warfarin reversal, and stopped all my medication for 4 days, including Flecainide and Dronedarone, with the unsurprising result that I went into AF for 24 hrs, throwing the Nurses and doctors into a panic! Eventually they gave me my meds, and asked ME to control it, as I would at home!! I did, and only then did they let me take my normal daily meds , excluding Warfarin. I am now home on 6mg daily, where before I was on 4mg.
Has anyone else had such a problem, and how long did it take to feel better?
