Your doctor need to get the following blood work for you to monitor Xarelto because of your bleeding;

1) activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT),

2) diluted thrombin time (TT), or ecarin clotting time (ECT).

3) prothrombin time.

Your dose need to be decreased.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
