I have a Carbomedics mitral valve (Cleveland Clinc FL 1-21-98)and now require an inguinal hernia operation. Present medications are Zestril,
Lanoxin, Clonidine, and Coumadin. I am in AFib, which I hardly notice,
and have an average heart rate around 55 to 60. I recently went off coumadin for a total of 5 days in order to have oral surgery with no problem.
I'd like to know what the heperin procedure is, or should I simply do as
I did for the oral surgery?
