Surgery For Hemophilia Carriers

Surgery For Hemophilia Carriers

Has anyone who is a known hemophilia carrier with 50% factor levels had surgery.
My sister is due to have a knee replacement. What was your experience and what did you have to do pre surgery and post op?
Please share your experiences. Thanks

Surgery went well. Assay done pre-op had factor levels at 69%. Surgery was carried out without any additional factor. We had on stand-by just in case!
Recovery was good and she was driving a stick shift after 4 weeks

I am a carrier and have factor VIII levels in the low 40%. I had to have Helixate prior to minor surgery and DDAVP after. I would imaging a knee replacement would require factor before and after, possibly during recovery/rehab as well.
