Surgeries and Hemophilia

Posted on March 28, 2018

Surgeries can create complications for those with hemophilia. It’s important to find a team of doctors who are knowledgeable and experienced with hemophilia to work together and create a treatment plan. In addition, MyHemophiliaTeam members say that the plan may need to include infusions and appropriate pain medications for after surgery.

On MyHemophiliaTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with hemophilia members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Surgeries are one of the topics members discuss the most.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about surgeries:

When surgery is needed how do you get doctors to work together?

Any female with hemophilia on here have a hysterectomy? I am scheduled soon and would like to hear your experiences.

My son has factor VII deficiency and is 4. He is getting his tonsils and adenoids out and I'm a little nervous. Any advice?

Here are a few conversations about surgeries:

I have had a lot of surgeries but have only needed a transfusion for 2 of them.

Finished 10 days of infusions due to oral surgery. Feels great to have the line out.
