So Sorry...: First of all, I'm so sorry for your loss. No one should have to go through even a third of what you've already been through. In terms of the Lovenox (enoxaparin)...the injections are short lived. They are often stopped just 1 day prior to major surgery. Talk with your prescribing doctor to make sure there aren't any other reasons you can't. Be sure to choose a reputable artist to avoid other complications
