Came off warfarin due to having two colonoscopies two weeks apart. I'm on warfarin for afib permanent. I'm taking 75ml of heparin innohep daily to bridge. Going to have another colonoscopy again in two weeks and then restart warfarin again. Consultant said it's pointless going on and off warfarin and better to use heparin throughout these procedures, which makes sense. my question is about restarting warfarin, I'm anxious as endoscopy clinic seem a bit vague and this makes me worry. Am I started as if a new warfarin patient again rather than just take my original dose? I've been off it two months do it's out of my system now. Do I take heparin whilst I start warfarin? I'm going to ask this but have to wait for my next appt and my minds ticking over two to the dozen! thanks
