I Am A 62 Year Old Senior Who Needs To Have 13 Teeth Removed....

I Am A 62 Year Old Senior Who Needs To Have 13 Teeth Removed....

I am looking for an oral surgeon familiar with Hemophilia in the Titusville/Orlando, Florida. I am a Hemophlia patient (Factor 11) def. and have a tendency to bleed alot.. My dentist said I would need a transfusion before, and one unit after the procedure. So we are talking about a two-three day hospital trip for me. So far, I have no recommendations for anyone close by. Not sure what to do, as the work needs to be done asap because of constant infections.

Any advise would be appreciated… read more

Joint Bleeds

Joint Bleeds

I have von Willebrands disease. I really don’t know much about it. I was told its a relatively minor case but that’sall i know. I don’t know what to expect with this disease and have a lot of body pain and headaches. I’m not sure if any of this is from vwd or if it’smy other conditions.

You can research it on Google. It’s a factor 8 Deficiency, if you have internal bleeding or heavy periods you can take medications to add factor 8, or sometimes people react well to stimate. Swelling… read more

Does Anyone Else Have Non Itchy Red/purple Dots. Always There.

Does Anyone Else Have Non Itchy Red/purple Dots. Always There.

Hi, I have VWD, I have had red and purple dots for at least 15 yrs. Only on my abdomen and a few on chest. There are tons of them. Some very very tiny, a few look like cherry animolas spell?? A few raised. Most flat and never itch. Never go away completely. Sometimes they seem much worse or more prevalent than other times. Like if i take ibuprofen, which I was told not to but can't help it sometimes. My hematalogist always said its from the VWD. But that was 15 yrs ago. And i can't remember the… read more

Baby Clotting Each Time Blood Is Drawn

Baby Clotting Each Time Blood Is Drawn

My son hasn’t been tested for Factor V Leiden or any other clotting disorder... well he has been...but it was after a blood transfusion. 🙄

When he was 2 months the hospital struggled to get his PICC line in.. (kept clotting)

Today he is 10 months and needed to have blood work done.. but they couldn’t get a lot because he kept clotting..

I guess my question is... is this a sign that he would most likely have a clotting disorder?

TIA

Intching, Pins And Needles On Face And Head

Intching, Pins And Needles On Face And Head

I’ve been having pins and needles and itching on my face and head from taking norco and methadone to manage my pain. Doesn’t anyone have a way to cope with it or any other information. I’ve tried other pain killers and can’t tolerate them as well as I do the opiates. I also smoke pot at night to deal with neuropathy and anxiety etc.
