Some of you may have read my post about a serious blood poisoning I had last week,ending with a trip to A and E,IV antibiotics and a weeks worth of antibiotics to go home.
As my hand is still discoloured,litt!e warm to touch and bit tender,now have another weeks worth .
When I picked up the second lot,the pharmacist came out and said 'these are very strong,have you ever had them before?' When I said this is week 2 ,he was surprised and said it must have got a hold quickly.'I asked if being on anticoagulants wiuld make a difference, 'Ah, he said,yes indeed,makes you more susceptible'
Thought Id share that. Im on Apixaban 5mg x 2
