The answer is no you should not stop your plavix. While it does slightly increase bleeding, most cardiologists do not stop plavix as it improves outcomes and results, especially if a stent is placed.
This instruction is usually given by your cardiologist so I would confirm with him, but that is standard.
Always ask if you need clarification/more information.
