Preparing For Surgery Progress:
If you take any blood thinners, you will need to modify your regimen around your surgery.
Most blood thinners will be stopped 1 week prior such as:
- e.g. Aspirin/Ibuprofen/Aleve
- Plavix (generic: clopidrogrel)
- Pletal (generic: cilostazol)
- Mobic (generic: meloxicam)
You will be instructed as to whether you can resume these medications after surgery or not.
