What are the dangers of blood transfusions?
« on: 29/06/2011 18:49:53 »
I have recently had 13 blood transfusions.  I know there is some danger of taking blood transfusions but am having a little trouble of identifying all of them.  Does anyone happen to know what all of the dangers are?  Thanks for comments.  Joe L. Ogan

Don't worry Joe, they have had a lot of practice with it since that French scandal, and the routines around testing and handling it are much improved those days. If you need them, take them. One step at a time me man, it will work out. And good to see you back btw :)
