In any case I'll have to remain off Xaralto.
Swan….you mentioned you were on Xerelto earlier in the thread. I didn’t say anything then. But, this was my experience…
The abdominal surgery of my prostatectomy created a clot in my leg that was about
6” long. I was immediately placed on Xerelto in the ER. Shortly after…visible blood began to show up in my urine. We looked everywhere. The only thing we could come up with was a good sized kidney stone…too big to pass. I was on and off Xerelto during the stone blasting and my stricture dilation. Every rock had been looked under for the source of the blood. But none was ever found even though the bleeding continued every time I was on Xerelto. This went on for about
a year. Xerelto equaled bleeding. No Xerelto equaled no bleeding. My doctors wanted me on the Xerelto for the rest of my life. But every time I was put on it the bleeding old begin again. This, even with much testing as to where the bleeding was coming from.
It was finally determined that no cause for the bleeding could be found. It was then that the doctors determined that gross bleeding wasn’t acceptable and that the Xerelto had to be stopped.
I had been on and off it for about
a year when they finally pulled the plug on the Xerelto. I haven’t bled since.
Just one man’s anecdotal experience with Xerelto. I’m confident that if I went back on it the bleeding would resume.
