To recap I am about to change from warfarin to Edoxaban before a hip replacement. The EP and I thought it was good timing as I would be anti coagulated longer as it is a 24 hr drug as opposed to 4 days to get out of the system. But yesterday at my pre op assessment the nurse contacted the surgeon as she didn't know the protocol and he said the anaesthetist had told him to stop the Edoxaban 5 days before! That can't be right surely? I am thinking now to stay on warfarin for a while. Comments?
