Why is it that there are so many DIFFERENT protocols when talking about bridging?
Just today, I heard a friend say that her Dr. was going to get her to stop her anticoagulant treatment FOUR DAYS PRIOR to her procedure.
That was it, nothing else... affraid

When I had my gallbladder removed last year, I was already on Fragmin injections but I was taken off of it ONE DAY prior the procedure and as soon as I was out of ICU back on anticoags I was.

I have heard of people who were going to have knee replacements WITHOUT any bridging.
I have also heard of people who do not have clotting problems and having either a knee or a hip replaced and no anticoagulants post op.

Is this 2010??? affraid
