HI everyone , how are we all doing ? you may remember me !! I do follow the postings quite regularly with interest .
I am on Apixaban and 25 mg Aspirin and have PAF for about a year now. Yesterday I was diagnosed with inguinal hernia and need an operation for the hernia. I do not know what steps do they take to stop the medication prior to the operation ? and what are the risks of having a stroke before and after the operation if I have to be without the NOAC . your guidance and experience is greatly appreciated .
