I've had a bad few weeks with brain fog. I saw both Haematologist and Rheumy today and explained that I had a small surgery about 3 weeks ago so had to stop the Rivaroxaban 48hours before and start 12 hours after. (I had a couple of Clexane shots but had to stop them on day of surgery) I keep not finishing sentences, and I watched a recorded program on TV and my husband asked me why I was watching it again. I told him I hadn't seen it and he said we both watched it a couple of days ago! We had a bit of an argument but I really couldn't remember even bits of it.
Haematologist asked what I was doing later in the day and I told him I had an appointment with Dr "Whats his face" (couldn't remember Rheumy's name!) He had a chuckle and filled in the blanks as he knew who I was talking about. I was offered an MRI but it wouldn't really change the course of treatment-so I declined.
My Rheumy looked at last bloods and said if I ever have to have surgery again I'd need to be in hospital, bridged by IV heparin that would be stopped 4 hours before and would I please make sure I don't miss any doses of Rivaroxaban and aspirin! (it's the one med I do not forget!)
It appears my sticky blood is here to stay........
I hope my mind comes back by next week as I'm flying to Hong Kong My Rheumy said he will quiz me about the trip when I see him next!
