Pre-op & 28 days of Fragmin Anti-Coagulant Shots

~*Hi all
I went for my pre-op today and it went well. I'm all set for a DaVinci surgery in a few weeks, just the MRI to get through next week. When I was going over the Gynecology-Oncology Surgery booklet with my nurse, she informed me that I'll need to be giving myself Fragmin shots (its an anti-coagulant) for 28 days after surgery. One of the nurses is supposed to teach me how. I'm not nervous of needles as I used to give myself B-12 shots but I've never heard of this before. Does anybody else have to do this?
Thanks, Chrysalis~*

I was told I might need to do heparin shots at home depending on my labs. Do you have coagulation issues or did they give you any indication why you might need to do those shots? 28 days seems like a long time to be doing shots!

No, I don't have any blood issues. I was just told that its to prevent blood clots. I don't know if its specific to women with cancer or whether they recommend it to all women undergoing hysterectomies at this hospital.
