Hello. I am wondering if you agree with the following standard of care:
My 85 yo grandmother was told she needed a lesion removed from her lower leg. They took her off her Coumadin medication for 5 days prior to performing the excision. A week later, she suffered a stroke. She is in the hospital now and the doctor has told us he believes removing her from the Coumadin caused this event. I am so incredibly irate and upset that this dermatologist felt the urgency to do this procedure. Thoughts?
