They are using the lovenox
as a "bridge
" drug so your blood is still thin while you are off the warfarin. They gave me lovenox
in the hospital, and I used it at home before my warfarin levels were up to where they wanted them after cardioversion. I did read of one post on here where the woman had a stroke after going off her blood thinning therapy before a colonoscopy. I have yet to have my colonscopy and that is one of the reasons.
