I received a letter on in early December for a vascular appointment in mid December. This letter stated that if I was on the contraceptive pill that this medication should be stopped 4-6 wks prior to surgery otherwise the procedure cannot go ahead!
This is a question I was NOT asked at my consultation therefore I have had to cancel my appointment. A simple question at consultation could have avoided this situation and delay in my treatment which will now go out with the 12 wk timeframe. I am very disappointed.
However the secretary I spoke with on the phone was good.
