Reaction to DDAVP
I am 33 with three wonderful children and have recently been diagnosed with Von Willibrands, factor XIII. Not even sure I am saying that correctly! I recently had a colonoscopy, and in preparation they gave me DDACP via IV. I had a severe allergic reaction, purple face, tachachardia, shaking, numb arms...they had to call a crash team and have defibulators on stand by. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I have to have surgery in january and I am not sure what they ar going to use to prevent bleeding.
