my blood work was normal I started xarelto in Apr of 2015 for a fib and had an maze ablation after I had high liver enzymes in my blood work. I went to a Hematologist and she told me it looks like I now have a lupus antibody. My cardiologist said it may be cause by the xarelto so in September I had a ekg monitoring chip implanted in my chest so that I could get off of the xarelto. In July of 2016 I went for a routine colonoscopy and was told I have a 5 cm cancer growth in the cecum of my colon. so that is where I am now waiting to see the general surgeon.

My docs started me on Januvia about six weeks ago. My blood pressure skyrocketed. I have always had LOW BP. Docs are saying that the high BP is not a side effect of Januvia, but I take issue with that. Is there enough information about this to convince them? Thank you.
