Questions from patients

Polyp removal

I have a small flat polyp and have just started warfarin and is somewhat stabilized being in the range of 2.8. What is the procedure if I have to have the polyp removed to go off warfarin for the operation?
Leon Fisher Gastroenterologist Beaumaris
It depends on the size of the polyp. If it’s very small, less than 5 mm, can be done on warfarin. Otherwise the warfarin will need to be stopped for 5 days before the procedure. Some people may need to be on clexane while off warfarin.
