Dealing with Effects of Blood Thinners
Anyone have suggestions for dealing with side effects of blood thinners? I'm back on Eliquis after an episode of afib and successful cardioversion, but not happy about it! I've pretty much learned to deal with bleeding from cuts, but bruises! my heaven the bruises! If I just bump into something, I end up with broken vessels that leave ugly red masses on my forearms for weeks. I look like I've been batting a kangaroo - and not very successfully. And I don't even want to talk about how long it takes to repair after a little abrasion. Any thoughts or suggestions?
I hope this is a good day for you! Sue
