My mother is having cataract surgery next week. She was prescribed Plavix because if a mild stroke last year. I know that you have to stop taking Plavix 5 days prior to surgery. If she stops taking it, will the risks be greater for a stroke, or are the dangers of bleeding of greater concern?
The bleeding dangers are a more immediate risk. Her dr will tell her what to do with it.
