As of Wednesday, I am not taking any of my prescription meds. I am having a discogram on Monday, and my surgery is on the 27th. I am in total agony, but... I went for pre-surgery testing this morning and happened to mention that my blood pressure has been helped more by fish oil capsules full of omega 3's than by blood pressure medication, and was told that I should not be taking that either before surgery, as it will cause increased bleeding. Hmmm, does that mean I should not be eating fish??? I totally didn't get that. Has anyone else been told this?
