Withholding NOACS for surgery

Thanks for all the info. I am looking into those guidelines by NICE and also pharmacy info when prescription if filled for my apixaban.

My EP is the person I call each time I need a procedure and the 5 day recommendation was given for my carpal tunnel as well as a routine colonoscopy last year. I do fear the stroke more than a bleed so thank you all for input. May have to look for another EP.
