When Dr. Agarwal joined us, he mentioned that there has been comparatively little enjoy with Xarelto, metastatic cancer, and neobladders. Although he suspected that my gross hematuria became the likely end result of the Xeralto loosening some tissue in my neobladder, he mentioned that he desired to rule out the prospect that my metastatic cancer had emerged in either my kidneys, ureters, or in different places in my urothelium. So next Monday I'll have a CT urogram to have a look at and (really) rule that out. He also scheduled me for a cystogram for January 20. I'll be underneath commonplace anesthesia for that, so in case he sees something that must be cauterized, he can contend with it. He'll do that the very first thing in the morning. I became ahead of scheduled to have a CT that morning followed by a clinic visit with Dr. Apolo; we're going to see if we will put off that by a couple of hours so I can walk myself to the CT scanner.
Dr. Agarwal advisable that I resume taking the Xeralto, although I may want to cease it two days ahead of coming in for the cystography. He mentioned that having gross hematuria became better than having pulmonary embolisms. He mentioned that it became a shame that I became allergic to the low molecular weight heparins, and mused that, if I became unable to continue on the Xeralto, I might well need to acquire as factual with anIVC filter. I'm not excited approximately that theory. It's an update to acquire as factual with later, and only if I need to.
