Brief Answer:
Go ahead with the procedure

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic. The procedure can be done and you would need to bridge, possibly with Lovenox. You might also need to hold it off completely prior to surgery.

Let me know if I could help further.
