    If you take low-dose aspirin for any reason, check your supply and run out for a new bottle if it's low. Stopping baby aspirin suddenly can triple your odds for trouble-causing blood clots in 10 days (yes, 10; that's no typo). Have a talk with your doc about the pros and cons of stopping your baby aspirin regimen, especially if you have surgery scheduled.
