Are calcium and magnesium supplements advisable for a patient undergoing brain surgery?
You can take it, no blood thinning effect.
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern given the delicate nature of the surgery you are about to have.
However I do not see any reason you should be deprived of your supplement. It contains as you know calcium and magnesium which are electrolytes as well as boron which is a mineral also naturally found in several foods originating from plants, so all products naturally present in our bodies.
None of those components has any blood thinning effect, you and your neurosurgeon should not be concerned about that. I suggest you continue taking it for your low magnesium.
I remains at your disposal for other questions.
