Colonoscopy and a fib
i recently posted that I had been asked to have a colonoscopy after an abnormal bowel test and was wondering if Edoxaban may have caused bleeding. Thanks to Gemita, Marybird and Ian for responding.
I had the colonoscopy last week, they found a polyp which they took out, but also found evidence of diverticulitis which had been bleeding. They were not sure if Edoxaban might have triggered this.
I am going to ask Cardiologist next week to look at my dosage and see if it can be cut down.
The other thing that happened was the procedure triggered off my A Fib, which lasted for a few days, I think it all might have been caused by the bowel prep and the laxatives...It has certainly taken a while to settle!
Thanks to all on this site, it really helps to share. Keep well!
You know you're wired when...
You have a high-tech ticker.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
