Same here. If I forget to take it, sometimes my dentist will give it to me, but then we have to wait 30 minutes before they start the procedure and it affects their scheduling. I take it even for cleanings.Cardio had said it's not an option. Have to take it. Dentist won't see me if I don't take it.
Ask your proctologist/colorectal doctor to contact your cardiologist. Your cardios nurse should call you back with what is to be done. What is needed depends upon your condition and what the exam will entail (e.g. just a look-see or includes polyp removal.)I have a long overdue routine follow up colonoscopy I need to schedule. It has moved out three times due to: prostatectomy, COVID-19 resource issues, and mitral valve repair. Cardiologist says OK to do in3 months. Anybody else have any special prep or problems doing one?
Yes absolutely. It's not like it's expensive. My cardio and ID have always said yes.Hello - I had a mitral valve repair 1 1/2 yr ago. I take 2000 mg of amoxicillin 1 hr before my cleaning. Next week I need a filling. Do you take your antibiotics with any kind of dental procedure? I will probably Email my cardiologist to be sure.
