Just had my blood test results back from the GP ahead of my 2nd ablation and have been told to return next week as I have an abnormal result in respect of Hemoglobin levels!
My last blood test carried out about 7 months ago was fine.
I have been taking Rivaroxaban for a year or so and after doing some reading on the internet I have discovered that there appears to be a link between this drug and decreased hemoglobin levels.
There are a numerous sites in the US offering legal advice to patients so they can pursue compensation.
Following an ablation for AF earlier this year I developed Tachycardia. I am now questioning whether the low hemoglobin has contributed to this? My theory being that because not enough oxygen is being carried by the hemoglobin in the blood the brain is telling the heart to beat faster to deliver more oxygen?
Does anyone else had any knowledge of this?
