Hi! It says "limited time remaining, and it is Sunday of Labor Day weekend, so I hope someone can answer my question in time for me to consider the purchase. I have an inherited clotting disorder, for which I take Coumadin. However, for other medical tests such as my colonoscopy screening or my appendectomy, I HAD to come off it for 4 days or be reversed. Ususally, even if my PT/INR has gotten very high, over 6, stopping my Coumadin for just 2 days take me below 2, which is less than therapeutoc. So, I believe that when I know I am in normal therapeutic range, between 2-3, stopping for 2 days would yield about the same amount of bruising as anyone else, and not cause me to have to go on synthetic heparin such as Lovenox while I build my Coumadin level back up. (I am also a doc, BTW) Would your doctor feel comfortable doing this procedure on me if I stopped my Coumadin for 2 days, after a blood check knowing I was in therapeutic range right before?
