Sticky blood?

Postby Quackers » Fri Jan 07, 2011 2:02 am

I have read on here a while back about people with sticky blood but cannot remember what it was about.
When giving birth to my first 2 children I had to have my afterbirth removed under anaeshtetic. In the following 2 births I had problems but not as bad.

After ny 2nd son the sister in charge advised me not to have any more children because of this as she said I had sticky blood and had seen other women have big problems in later life. I asked my GP about this and he told me that it was an old wife's tale. Hence the reason I went on to have my 2 daughters.

The one and only time I went to donate blood they could only get half the amount from me. The nurse showed me the blood I had given and said that my blood was very sticky, it sure looked it, and that I would not make a good donor.
I have always had lots of problems when a blood sample is needed and there have been a lot of comments made about it being sticky.
Has this anything at all to do with Fibro?
