Got to my Dr appointment about blood thinners for upcoming surgery. He will send the needed paperwork to my surgeon, so next week I should be in the waiting list for surgery. Will for sure be at least the last week of May, possibly into June. I will have to give myself shots of thinner that just lasts 24 hours each for 5 days prior to surgery. My Coumidin stays in the system to long, so I have to switch to this short acting shot form. Last shot the day before surgery, then after I leave the hospital I may have to take a few more days of shots, but the surgeon will determine that. Then I go back on my normal thinner. Never given myself a shot, and if I can't bring myself to do it, we have a neighbor friend who will for me. I figure if I can do it once, then I'm good, but that remains to be seen.
