Welcome back. Good to hear from you and all is going well, or as well as can be expected!Oh yeah, forgot to say - and I wanted to ask you guys about this. They held the warfarin for a day because I was getting the pacing wires pulled out the next day; and since I’d gone up to 2.4 so quickly, they thought I’d be too high (and might have a bleeding complication I guess). I thought at the time, “is that really necessary, since the effect from holding warfarin might not be seen for days...?” but deferred to their judgment... on that one...
They did the same to me, INR was stabilized, then gets lowered to remove the wires, then bags of Heparin to raise it again.
Did you get a mini or full sternotomy? Only 2 drain tubes?
Well at least the hard part is over. Recovery goes fast. You'll feel better every day.
