Sharon, thanks again for organizing all this info. I am getting my symptom log together for Dr. Dake as you have suggested.
Here's a question for getting ready: did you cut back on any supplements in advance of the surgery? I know that being on coumadin may mean modifying things, but what about prior to that? (apologies if this topic is covered elsewhere, but this seems like the logical place. I have a vague memory of someone stopping something, but I can't find it.)
I can check with Dr. Dake about it, but I figured some of you may already have figured it out. And the advice that Lew got regarding the steroids, i.e. do what you need and don't change things in advance, is probably applicable and may make this question mute, but just to be sure...
I am wondering about: alpa lipoic acid, turmeric, NAC, CoQ10, vit D, vit b12, calcium, multi vit (with E in it)
Thanks for your comments!
