I Am A 62 Year Old Senior Who Needs To Have 13 Teeth Removed....
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

You absolutely need to contact the closest Hemophilia treatment center. I would not ever do oral surgery without the their involvement. I have had 3 surgeries all went well. I have Von Willebrands.

Does Anyone Else Have Non Itchy Red/purple Dots. Always There.
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Baby Clotting Each Time Blood Is Drawn
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?


A MyHemophiliaTeam Member

Better to find a hematologist to ask that question
