@spudmato. After my TIA last January, my cardiologist and my children convinced me to have a loop recorder implant to make sure I don't have afib, as many people have afib and not really feel it. So far so good. No afib noted. I was also put on Xeralto. Apart from some bleeding from my gum, which I have problem with before the Xeralto, I have not noticed any serious bruising. I've read that blood clotting is found in many covid patients so that's another reason I'm still on it.
I don't like taking meds, but don't want another TIA either. The next time I may not be so lucky as I did not suffer any damage from the last one. I just wish there's a generic soon. I can hardly afford it, yet I don't qualify for any kind of assistance either from xeralto or Medicare.
