When stopping xarelto is it a process to quitting all of the sudden. I was told there were risk. I ask because I had 3 clots in the lungs and 3 in my legs about a month ago. But now I have a torn meniscus and need surgery The surgeon says ill have to be off the med for at least 7 days but my physician may think its too early

It would be best to follow your surgeon's instructions, and just make sure your doctor is monitoring you regularly. There may be a slight risk from stopping the Xarelto, such as increased risk of clotting, but there is a definite risk if you are on it too close to surgery, since that increases your risk of bleeding and hemorrhage.

Are you on any other medications? What is the current status of the blood clots?
