Had provoked DVT. On Coumadin (warfarin) for 3 months. Last dose was last night. Told by dr to start baby aspirin daily. Do I start right away or wait a few days?

In brief: Start right away

Start right away.
Hopefully this will be effective treatment to prevent recurrence for you. Recurrence is most frequent in the first three weeks after discontinuing anticoagulation so don't delay your ASA and monitor yourself for pain, swelling or changes in the affected leg.
