Re: My Father is scheduled for Triple Bypass Surgery on 9/21/05

Eva Marie,

Current thinking is to discontinue the coumadin 5 days before major surgery (and usually substitute heparin)...PLEASE call the doctor who is going to do the surgery and ask him TODAY what to do.
If they ask, "Is it an emergency?" say YES!
