In August 2012, I was diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis. I was placed on Xarelto, 25 mg. Since then, I experienced some problems that I believe may be associated with the medication and my condition.
1. Frequently, I have to urinate. However, this is less severe on day s that I miss the medication.
2. A concern about my age (41) and symptoms of fatigue led me to schedule an appointment with the doctor. I was concerned that my may have been experiencing thyroid problems or adrenal insufficiency. She indicated that I did not have these conditions. However, I was skeptical.
3. I had a colonoscopy in September 2015. Prior to the colonoscopy I took the required amount of laxatives. However, the physician noted that there was a significant amount of stool in me as he did the procedure.
4. After a CT scan of the abdomen, the same doctor noted that she usually recommends patents to a surgeon whose abdomen appear as mine. I cannot repeat the results. The results were technical and the results were difficult for me to understand. When followed up about her recommendations, she stated that I should do nothing and we would have a follow-up in two years.
I am concerned about my health status declining. Any advice would be appreciated.
