If you’re having surgery and taking supplements you might want to stop them before your procedure. * Ginkgo biloba, an herb used to boost memory may cause dangerous bleeding during surgery. * Ginseng is taken to improve the immune system may affect sugar levels. * Valerian root is often taken for sleep disorders can make anesthesia dangerous.
I recommend stoping all these supplements as soon as you know you are having surgery and inform your physician and anesthesiologist if you have been taking any of these supplements. Ron #hipandkneedoc #tulsa #supplements #surgery
