My name is Bill (50 yr old male), and I was scanning the web for information on taking Plavix, and when to quit for a few days before Oral Surgery. Well I found this site, so I had to Join and post!
First of all I had a Heart Attack on Feb,29 2004, yep leep day..Well, two stents later,
I am on Plavix, and Asprin along with Toprol and Zokor. Yesterday I had a crown fall off, and called the Doc, he said quit taking plavix 5 days before the Oral surgery and start
back on it the day after. And I allways double check him with a little research, just me
I guess. I have learned a lot the last two years, heck I even like healthy food and the treadmill now...
Has anyone else run into post stent surgery? Did you have to quit plavix and or Asprin? If so how long? Currious minds must know!
Also, I would be glad to help anyone with a little support while going through a Heart
Attack...just write me..
