I only had AFIB during three operations. I wore a Holter for a month after my bypass and kidney removal surgeries. There was no sign of AFIB
I took 5mg Eliquis for a short time after the bypass surgery, After wearing the Holter for a month after the bypass surgery my cardiologist took me off the Eliquis. My cardiologist put me back on after the kidney removal. No EKG, blood pressure monitor, or Kardia Mobile has detected AFIB.
My question is "Do I really need to be on Eliquis?"
