Xarelto is a blood thinner use to prevent blood clotsfrom forming. There are serious health problems that can occur when a bloodclot is form & gets dislodge & then travels in the blood stream. Inyour case it blocked a vesicle in your brain causing you to have a stroke. Themost common side effect of Xarelto is pro long bleeding & bruising. Do notuse Xarelto if you have any acute bleeding or use aspirin because it canincrease your risk for bleeding. No, routine blood work is required withXarelto. You need to keep all appointments with Dr. Johnson.
