My doctor is doing an angioplasty on Tuesday, Dec. 14th to insert two stents. He started me on Plavix yesterday.I always thought patients should be taken off Plavix prior to this procedure. Is the doc correct in prescribing Plavix now instead of after the procedure? I did start yesterday, but am truly concerned. Doctor is off for the weekend. Is this indeed safe? I worry about a nicked artery.
