Brief Answer:
Please contact the emergency.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I request you to contact the emergency if you suspect the above mentioned scenario. Bleeding could be a problem as that drug inhibits platelet aggregation. There may be bruising on the body.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
