      I am scheduled to have Hernia surgery in two weeks.  I take OFEV twice a day, should I skip the night before?

      Obviously I will skip the morning before surgery because I will not be able to eat,

      Hi Don, This is definitely something your pulmonologist and your surgeon should advise you on. They should consult with each other and let you know.

      Hi Don

      I’ve had 3 orthopaedic ops plus a stroke whilst taking OFEV and skipping a couple of days of OFEV should not hurt you,  in my experience. Checking with you doctor will give you peace of mind. Hope you op goes well.

      Just recovering from spinal surgery and was instructed to drop all medications before the operation except for Ovid.

      I second Christie and Derek – this needs to be discussed with your docs. My wife is having aorta repair surgery in 1 week. Her docs are having her stop many meds, including OFEV, which she stopped taking three days ago.

      Hope your surgery goes well!

      OFEV does cause bleeding ,so I stopped a number of times for procedures and too many side effects. Don’t fear a short stoppage.

      Also see Doctor and and ask him or her.
