I would call your cardiologist's office with this question. In general, it is recommended to withdraw metformin a couple of days before the procedure and hold a couple of days after the procedure. However, these recommendations vary a bit based on the cardiologist's preferences, and based on your specific conditions, so I would double check to make sure. The receptionists probably get this question all the time, so it should be pretty easy to answer.
