Hello Everybody, Last week my Ob-Gyn scheduled a colonoscopy for me. He found some rectal bleeding. While reading my instructions, I found out that I can't take coumadin for 3 days prior to the procedure. I am scared to death I will get a blood clot if I discontinue it for that long, or is 3 days not a long time? I have a mechanical aortic valve. Please help me with this as I am thinking of canceling my appointment. Has anyone else had to deal with this. Thank you so much.

Suspension of coumadin for 3 days
