Common Questions and Answers about Plavix and cataract surgery

plavix

Avatar n tn I recently had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> and was told to stop the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>plavix</span> for a week before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. How soon after surgery should I resume taking the plavix? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I was wondering could there be a connection between anything performed during the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> and the stroke? Could there be a connection between the local anesthesia and the stroke for example? Also, she has a cataract at her right eye. She hopes that she can undergo a second surgery for this eye. What would you recommend?

I will be having a local anaesthetic and have been told i will have 2 injections!! Can anybody tell me where these injections will be? Will they be in my eye!!) or around my eye? ...and do they hurt?? Thanks.
Avatar n tn i am not telling you to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> extraction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. i am only telling you that it may improve your glaucoma and your sight, and that in general the risks are fairly LOW, even for a glaucoma patient.
Avatar f tn I talked to my cardiologist and he said he had talked to the surgeon and for me to come off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>plavix</span> for 10 days. Three weeks after stopping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>plavix</span> for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> I was back in the cath lab and had a stint inserted. I do not come off plavix for any reason now. I have 6 stints in my heart and one in my neck. Last week they would not remove my cataract because it was only 3 months since I had 2 stints inserted in my heart. Could not do it until six months had passed. I had open heart in 2004.
Avatar f tn ________, is having had SLK (kerataconjunctivitis) for a long time and having scarring removed from the upper inner lid..be contrindicdicated in having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> thus by having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> removal perhaps now caused the post-op symptoms. I had mentioned to the Lasix surgeon prior to C. removal about the SLK but he did not say hey or ney about it. I am doing my own reseach as I have to get well. Thank You.
Avatar f tn No reply yet. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> has been 11 weeks ago and I am no better. It was simple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. I did not want any fancy lens...Just give me back what God gave me. I now have large Black Viteous detachmants with lighted Halo's/wavy lines with suspected Retina tear. I was suppose to remain near sighted. I am now farsighted. They cannot do surgery on me as I am a heart patient and on plavix. The stress has caused severe angina attacks.
Avatar n tn Now my Cardiologist tells me that I have to wait another 5 months to do this because I don't dare stop the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>plavix</span> and aspirin. And that I cannot have any kind of invasive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> during the 1st 6 months. I just learned this a month after the stent was put in. My main question is this. What all is invasive surgery? I need to have some more small skin cancers removed and also may need to have a cataract removed. Is this safe or not?
Avatar n tn I also had a Vitrectomy in one eye, with a gas bubble. I also developed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> and recently had it removed and an IOL implanted. So far so good.
Avatar f tn surgery and Lasik? And why would I get cataract's if I had Lasik <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>? I really don't even know what they do and what cat. are. I so badly want this surgery but I also am leary when it comes to my vision. I have enough problems without creating one.
315318 tn?1353255400 We do not stop blood thinners for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> since we do it with topical and intracameral anesthesia and make the incision through the clear cornea which does not have blood vessels.

Avatar f tn I have lupus and have a heart condition where I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>plavix</span> and prednisone along with other meds. Am I a candidate for this procedure? I would love to throw away the glasses! I need them for distance and for reading. If so do you know of any good docs in the ATL area?
Avatar f tn Hi. FOr ages I have been complaining about dizziness and a pins and needles feeling in my left cheek. (by ages, since 2003) I have been sent for ultrasound of coratid artery (no problems) and and MRI/MRA (no problems) but the symptoms are not only stil there, they are getting worse, considerably. I have noticed that this summer, with humidity real high, they are horrible!
