I was lucky enough to get a clot from knee to groin in January this year, and was given the choice of Rivaroxaban or warfarin. I chose Riva so that I didn’t have to worry about getting my INR checked all the time. About 4 weeks after starting it I had chest pains so went to a&e, and it was found I had a pulmonary embolism. A huge one. It’s thought that the riva had no affect on me, so I’m now taking warfarin. I saw a hematologist the other day and he decided that I’m now on warfarin for life.
