Hi, after having spent 7 hours on hospital ward waiting to go in for ablation procedure, was told that it couldn't be done because my I N R reading was to high (4.4) On warfarin have had no significant changes to my diet recently,This is the first time my levels have been above (3.5). I followed the instructions on my admission letter to stop my amiodarone and Bisoprolol 10 days and 5 days respectively prior to admission.Also had my Warfarin dosage adjusted to compensate for this. When speaking to my EP Before he discharged me he wanted to know why I had stopped the medication and told me that there was no need to stop it. He also said that if my next letter told me to stop them I was to ignore it and carry on as usual, (very confused now). Has anyone else had this happen to them? Have new date for the 22nd October just waiting for the confirmation letter to arrive to see what instructions are given.
