Is it common to have a blood ttansfusion after a hip replacrment surgery?

Is it common to have a blood ttansfusion after a hip replacrment surgery?

No, but it happens.: No, the majority of patients do not need blood transfusion after hip replacement. Every patient is a little different, and there can be multiple reasons for doing a blood transfusion. Aside from replacing intraoperative blood losses, if you started the operation with a low blood count, having a blood transfusion may lower the risk of certain cardiac complications as you recover. ...Read more

How much blood must be lost during a surgery in order for a blood transfusion to be administered?

Depends: This depends on what your starting blood counts are, what your underlying medical comorbidities(ailments) are, and how your body is responding to blood loss. For some people, it may be many mLs, for others, particularly if they've had ongoing blood loss prior to the surgery, it may be after only a small amount(as in less than 200 mLs). ...Read more

Do I have a choice of whether I wish to receive a blood transfusion before a surgery if things were to go wrong and I lose lots of blood during????

Yes: You are free to refuse blood transfusions if you want. In this situation, your will pay for your bad decision with your life. Jehovah's Witnesses do this stuff. They die. Most surgeons would refuse to operate until you wise up. Blood component therapy has risks but today they are nothing compared to the risks of believing international scare stories and refusing needed health care. ...Read more

As a follow up to my previous question, I am facing hip replacement surgery in a few days and am a bit stressed. Could that affect my blood glucose?

As a follow up to my previous question, I am facing hip replacement surgery in a few days and am a bit stressed. Could that affect my blood glucose?

Stress & glucose: Blood glucose can increase in stress, especially in diabetics. If this has been going on for awhile, it's likely to be more related to Insulin resistance which can come with being overweight. I'm not sure if this describes you, but it's a common cause. Your doctor will probably want to follow your blood sugar and hemoglobin a1c over time, and make recommendations. Good luck with your surgery. ...Read more

My grandfather just had a surgery as his hip bone had broken due to falling down.his cardiac enzyme in the blood is high.so what is it..he is normal?

Difficult to say: It's a difficult situation to answer without knowing more specifics. It's possible that the particular cardiac enzyme is nonspecific and actually related to damage to your grandfather's muscles. It is possible that the fall was related to damage to his heart or stress after the fall. Remember not all damage is a frank heart attack in the blocked blood vessel sense. Best of luck. ...Read more

If i will be undergoing myomectomy surgery -fundal fibroids ( 3) , in my 30's, what is normal hb (hemoglobin)?Do i need blood transfusion ?

About 12-16 g/dL.: Normal hemoglobin for an adult female is between 12-16 g/dl (7.4-9.9 mmol/l). You might need blood, like 2 units for your surgery to replace any blood lost. If you are anemic, which might be the case in these circumstances, you might need more. At any rate, your doctor, to prepare you for surgery might talk to you about autologous transfusion, or donating blood to yourself. Best of luck. ...Read more

Dr.Is it true that saving uterus during myomectomey surgery  can't be granted  even with 13 (hb-hemoglobin) and blood transfusion? Why is that gyn's?

Not a blood issue: Saving the uterus would depend on the disease in the uterus. Your hemoglobin level or the use of blood transfusion is generally not the determining factor. Fibroids are often multiple and it may not be feasible to carry out a myomectomy, remove the fibroids and save the uterus. ...Read more

My grandpa has broken his hip bone. He is 88 yrs old. His heart has lvef 22% and blood urea of 120. Creatinine is 2.8. Can he undergo ortho surgery?

Optimize: Ytour grandfather has a broken hip has an ef22 and high bun. He needs to be optimized first. The bone doctors will wait until he is at his best. The other option is three months bed rest for patients who would not likely survive operation. The BUN is very high and may improve. The ef will require optimization and maybe echo during or after. ...Read more
