A blog all about raising awareness for Women with Bleeding disorders.
I am a severe factor 5 Hemophiliac living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and this is a blog about my life!
I understand your frustration completely. It isn't a placebo effect and it is very offensive that she would tell you that and call you to treat you like a psycho. While she may be the doctor, you know more about your body and what it needs. Bleeds aren't always easy to see and just because they don't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write I really appreciate it!
It was a really stressfulSituation and I just hope it doesn't happen again to me or anyone else
Oh hon! That's horrible! I have similar things happen, just in a type 1 VWD kinda at - bruising without the visible signs. A sensitive spot, sore to touch, taking he usual long time to heal, just no purple splodging only skin. I've only once had it become a problem in the ER, thankfully, your bleeds sound just horrible. I hope you can work out a better treatment plan with your hospital and work out how to get around the well intentioned but sometimes clueless ER and ward staff.
