In 2 weeks I am due to have my second Total Hip Replacement. I am on warfarin (previously on Dabigatran) since a clot was discovered in the left atrial appendage. My EP thinks that it is timely, as I have to come off warfarin for the op, to switch me to a NOAC, namely Edoxaban. But he says it is up to my surgeon to advise as to how many doses I should miss and when to restart. My surgeon has never even heard of NOACs, so I am appealing to this forum for advice. I would like to be prepared for my pre op assessment on the 8th. Thank you.
