Exclamation Re: Von willebrand and a hysterectomy

I also have VWd. I am considering abilation or a hystorectomy keeping my ovaries. I am scared off post op and during the op bleeding but I think abilation will not be effective with me. I also don't want to repeat operations. I want to move on with my life. How did the operation go and how are you doing now??

Re: Von willebrand and a hysterectomy

Hi There

my op went well they administered factor 8 in teater through my drip and i did lost a lot of blood but they had FFP's on standby and a soul saver, i only used the FFP's and the factor 8.

wishing you all of the best for the new year and for the op.
