Stopping apixaban for 5 days post pacemaker implant
Had a CRT D implanted today and it seemed to go well but when I got home I had a phone call , apparently a doctor , who told me to stop Apixaban for 5 days. When I said I've not heard of it before she said she didn't know either so I'm wondering if this is misinformation or not ?
You know you're wired when...
Muggers want your ICD, not your wallet.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
