I don't know how I missed those posts...I had triple bypass in 2005...then some stents in 2014...subsequent to that my cardiologist "discovered" that I had Afib and wanted me to get a pacemaker and / or defibrillator.....I resisted...the doctor always would say..."it just skipped, did you feel it"...I never felt it once....then in 2019 I had an angio and he found another blockage...this was calcified and required a specialist, who discovered a second blockage right after the calcified one and he just used one long stent this time...after that my afib just disappeared...I have to take plavix, and it makes me bleed like crazy

...Well the bypass remedied it...and then 2 of the bypass grafts got clogged in 2014 ....so stents straightened that out...then in 2019....more clogs....stent again...but the bleeding is ridiculous .

Most likely (as I'm not a doctor), you can't take those meds (to stop bleeding) while taking other medications to deal with high blood pressure/constricted arteries, things like that, as for those problems, you don't want the blood to clot easily, as it can increase the chance of a stroke or a heart attack.
Exactly (y)...you hit it right on the head @dave_r
