Undergone major surgery, on warfarin, instructed to take bed rest. Can this cause problem for new job?

I recently had major surgery ans am now on warfarin. I got out of the hospital with instructions to have bed rest for the next couple of weeks. However, I could not do this. I had to start a new job. Part of this job requirement is to pass a series 7 test. Can my surgery or medication be causing a problem with retaining the information needed to pass this test.

Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

I you are asked to take some rest after a surgery I suggest you to take that rest and not to go out on any job. That may cause further problems and result in further complications.
If some job requires some medical examination (that is what I understand from the tests you have mentioned) then the surgery can be easily detected and you will not be selected for the job.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
