Default Pletal

I take 100mg of Pletal twice a day to avoid blood clots in my legs. Recently I was to have surgery and after laying in pre-op for 4 hours, the surgery was cancelled when a resident noticed on my chart that I take Pletal. The surgical team met and told me that since Pletal is a blood thinner that surgery was out of the question---I am off of it for 2 weeks and will have surgery.
