Hi just had microfracture femoral condyle. I have heart probs and been on blood thinners for many years. This was my second microfracture, i only stopped taking my aspirin (to thin blood) on day of op, next day retake aspirin every day. I have been given good painkilers, tramadol 400mg, ibrophen 400mg, gabbapentin, paracetamol. I had large lesion of damage on my knee as well as ruptured acl which cant be repaired. I have very little pain.
I took of the bandages this morning, my knee is not to badly swollen, only slight bleeding from op. So i was not told to stop taking aspirin. I am happy at moment, so i dont see a problem with taking bloodthinners. The first mfx i was on clopidogrel blood thinner, only stopped for the day
of operation. The operation failed because previous surgeon at different hospital had me weightbearing from the start with no crutches.
Good luck and hopefully taking your blood thinners will not effect rehab.
