I am due to undertake surgery to remove a Cataract on my right eye. I have persistent AF and take Apixiban and 1.25 Bisoprolol. When I discussed this with the surgeons team they seemed a little unsure if or even when I should stop taking the Apixiban before surgery. Eventually the told me to stop taking the Apixiban one day BEFORE the surgery which in effect means missing two doses (three doses if you include the morning of the surgery dose. I feel a little uneasy about being without anticoagulation for so long. Anyone had Cataract surgery taking Apixaban or any other anticoagulants. Any advice or comment would be welcome. Cheers Roy
