Bariatric Surgery And Von Willdebrands Disease

Bariatric Surgery And Von Willdebrands Disease

Hello, I was wondering if anyone with hemophilia has had bariatric surgery or any Marjory surgery? I was wondering how the surgery went and if there were any complications? I am considering surgery . Even though I have a very mild form of hemophilia one surgeon said he wouldn't risk it and the other one said it's no big deal?. I was just looking for advice from others who has been through it and the out comes..

Knee replacement surgery. If you need surgery, you need it. I have severe hemophilia, and had no complication in relation to hemophilia.

check with your Hemotologist, I've had several procedures and it totally can be taken care of if properly planned ahead. I am moderate Factor VIII that bleeds severe. If you have no hemotologist, contact your closest HTC. go to : https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/hemophilia/htc.html

Sorry, I know it's been awhile, and you may have had your procedure already. I have had extensive surgeries done, and with preplanning and my HTC doctor's orders in place, I have not had problems related to bleeding. Good luck to you

I know this is has been a while since your post, but my mother and I both have Von W. and both had the sleeve surgery. No issues at all with bleeding. I have had multiple surgeries and no issues except prolonged bleeding with wisdom teeth. We always plan infusions before after and for the next few days after.
