Hi all, sorry for the flurry of posts.
Here is the scenario. Have had four cases of AF in last few months one month sort, then a few weeks to a few days apart.
Cardio suggests increasing flecaninde to 100 mg morning and 200 night.
We discussed blood thinners - he said maybe we should consider using them because I have had quite a few episodes lately. I was quite resistant as my chads vads is 0, heart is fine other than AF.
Of course I get the risk of stroke (and with 2 kids I want to be there), but also I see a lot is said re risks of bleeding, whether gastro or other.
We discussed Noacs, and I also asked him about antidote etc.
Any thoughts guidance etc or pointers to other posts appreciated.
It's all a changing situation
