I'm a bit confused (and quite scared!) with a "stay-on Coumadin" or "go-off Coumadin" possibility for some upcoming dental work.
My family doc says the dentist has the best answer (he does have a heart-transplant patient and understands Coumadin therapy). My cardiologist said I may have to go off Coumadin for a few days depending on how much the dentist expects to make me bleed? Not sure what the dentist thinks yet as he hasn't even started excavating yet. I got a tooth that may not be saveable via root canal and it may have to go bye-bye-ouch! To top that off, he may even have to send me to an oral surgeon if the work is beyond his capability. Yikes!
Any experience here? Who should I depend on for the best answer?
I've done the cleaning thing with a ton of antibiotics so I understand that part.
