How often were you taking xarelto?
My cardiologist also has me on that. I had to do a special meeting with someone before they'd give it to me, and have to do bloodwork a few times a year. Someone also seems to call me every few weeks to make sure everything is going well.
With all of that, I haven't had any issues. But I usually have a small snack mornings before I take it. Then I take it before bed, probably an hour or 2 after dinner.
So good to hear from you - I had wondered how you were recovering. I'm sad to hear that the outcome has not been as good as hoped. Praying for complete restoration without more surgery. Hang in there - hopefully this episode will be a short blip in the long run. Sure miss your posts!
Glad to see you're back in the pool, Stewart. I'm sure it's frustrating to just be kicking, but it won't be long before you can start getting your groove back. With your grit, you'll be back up to fighting speeds in no time.
I'm sure all the kicking is boring now, but it will probably pay dividends when you are cleared to swim again!
