Mark, this seems like really useful information, but it will probably make more sense to me after I go through the steps at Stanford next month.

A related question, did you have any blood work done by your GP at home before you went to Stanford? I'm wondering if it's important to do some initial measurements or adjusting of these parameters before being operated on at Stanford.

I'm waiting for my appointment details to arrive from Stanford (although I'm lucky enough to have confirmed dates). Perhaps the answer to my question is spelled out there.

Thanks for any information...

Great info, Mark....thanks! Will have to include it in the glossary of terms.
Hey Tracy-
No need to have coagulation numbers done before you leave UNLESS you have coagulation issues, as indicated from previous tests. Marie worked with her GP before, during and after, since she knew about her sticky blood issues. They give you IV heparin during the procedure and start you on blood thinners right away at the hospital. You'll need your INR work done once you get home, to keep you at that sweet spot of 2. It took Jeff 10mgs of warfarin to get his number in the zone. He'll be done in 9 days...he's outside limbing up trees with a chain saw now (in 95deg. heat) I'm keeping my eye on him from the deck :) Can't believe the change in him, he couldn't have done this last summer-
