Check with your surgeon at any cost. Using blood thinners when you have an opration, especially a heart operation will surely get you in trouble or may even kill you because doctors will have a hard time to stop the bleeding that enevitably comes with every kind of operation. I know one person that needed six packs of blood and a lot of skill of the surgeon to survive a knee opration only for exactly that reason. None of the doctors had thought it necessary to inform him about this blood thinner problem before the operation.
