Hello and welcome to HCM,
With the history of pulmonary embolism
, the chances for its recurrence are more especially if you have to undergo surgery- a major or a minor.
Since, you have had endometrial ablation
under general anaesthesia
, chances of embolism (especially deep vein thrombosis
, DVT) are more.
DVT can lead to pulmonary embolism.
Thus, you need heparin injection with the day care surgery.
Surgeries under general anesthesia need heparin in patients who have an history of embolism in the past.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
