I have a replaced aortic valve( porcine)2009& a pacemaker( also 2009) for total heart block.
Recently toldI have AFandhada Stroke around 11/23/17. Cardiologist wants to add PRADAXA to my rx’s along with my new(2weeks) on Plavix.
I do not feel the AF, but I was totally unaware I had a stroke also. I’m concerned due to statements about blood thinners not for use with artificial HV. I know mine isn’t artificial, but it is not my own. I also have questions why my Medtronic pacer isn’t controlling the AF? Do not want to keep adding rx’s especiallyisf NOT necessary
