I had a heart attack last year and had 2 stents fitted in the blood vessels around my heart.
I have severe abdominal bloating from taking Ticagrelor. I have been told by my cardio specialist doctor this is a known side-effect, but I must stay on the Ticagrelor for 12 months to reduce my platelets until my stent becomes incorporated into my tissue.
OK, but I want to understand which body mechanisms is the Ticagrelor impacting that causes the bloating, so that I may research natural remedies to try to minimise this effect. Also is there any alternative drug that could provide the same function without causing bloating?
Who else has been through this situation and found out some answers?
