I am a fit 93 year old male. Golfing,(riding a buggy), Tai Chi classes and walking 40 minutes daily to visit my wife in Care. On 4 July I stared medication and my having a DVT was confirmed.
In 2011 I recovered from a. Pulmonary Embolism, using Warfarin. This time I'm taking 30 mg daily of Xarelto for three weeks then shall be on 20mg rivaoxaban daily thereafter. A simpler process, avoiding weekly blood tests.
BUT I have just read that during the first 4 weeks is the most likely time for the risk of a blood clot breaking off and getting into my blood stream.
I obviously have to make changes to my life style to lessen this risk.
Any Suggestions ?
