Great !!!, happy to hear all went well, it does take management and supervision, but it it went very welll, thanks for sharing !I have had one surgery, a TURP-Transurethral Resection of the Prostate. My urologist wanted me to drop warfarin and aspirin for 5 days including the day of surgery but it would be up to my cardiologist. My urologist didn't tell me I had to meet a target INR. His nurse just stated I needed to check my INR right before surgery. My urologist didn't give an opinion bridging other than to say it was a possible route dependent upon my cardiologist's assessment.
Indeed. Always, always challenge if in any doubt!
But just maybe (not trying to protect anyone) your dentist rationalised that the mouth is a dirty area and wanted antibiotic prophylaxis throughout the healing period?
The only thing my surgeon told me on discharge day was : You must, must, must, take antibiotics 1 hours before going to dentist. And he is surgeon #2 in the country... i do as he says, so far so good 6 years later.
