The day at the hospital was a bust. There was a drub Dad takes that turns out is a blood thinner. His nurse at the VA called it a "heart pill", so we weren't aware of this, and because he had taken it yesterday, it could cause excessive bleeding. Just got home a few minutes ago. Dad is rescheduled for 10am tomorrow, and my bro-in-law is going to take him so I can get some MUCH needed work done.
The Dr did give me the option to go ahead with the polyp removal this morning and that "he thought" it would be ok if he used staples, but I see how bad Dad bleeds with just a deep scratch, so I told him we'd wait. So most of the day wasted. What I don't understand is why his Dr office isn't perfectly clear, as they have a list of all Dad's meds, and should have stipulated each specific med he was to, or not to take before surgery. Instead it was a general "form letter" saying not to take "blood thinners".
