I was on thinners a few years ago but have developed internal bleeding so had to stop.Had a big bleed back in 2017 and needed 2 units of blood. They still can't find the source of my bleeding although it has not been a problem for a while now. Being on blood thinners was a big issue with my GI team. It took a lot to get them on board for the watchman.

Did you get your assessment done for the watchman? Answer a few questions and they assign points to your answers to see if you are eligible for the watchman. Your cardi does that.
