Hi I havent posted for a while but I do read the posts. I am in need of any suggestions that may help me with my problem. Basically I have aps osteoarthritis and various other medical problems that don't have a bearing on this. What the problem is is that I need to have nerve block injections in my back due to nerve impingement I am in constant pain with my back however in normal situations you would stop any anti coagulant before the procedure however as I have had five Pes and a stroke my gp advises I do not stop the clexane I am on twice a day for any reason he says there is ways around it but the consultant is adamant the procedure won't go ahead unless I stop the clexane.
It gets more complicated I was due to have breast surgery for a reduction to relieve the pain in my shoulders and neck the surgeon won't do the surgery unless I have the back procedure done as he says he couldn't guarantee I wouldn't wake up paralysed if I had to lie completely still for four hours.
So we are at a complete impasse. Obviously I don't want to risk another clot but would 24 hours uncoagulated make that much difference
I would be interested to hear your thoughts and sorry for the long posts
