Blood Tranfusion Risk during Hysterectomy

I'm having a TLH on Jan 22 and had to be screened for potential blood transfusion.

Is there a high risk of that for a TLH?

Everyone gets screened for a potential blood transfusion. The risks that you'll actually need one are pretty low. That's true even for open abdominal surgery, let alone laparoscopic surgery. :-)

Re: Blood Tranfusion Risk during Hysterectomy

I did need a transfusion after surgery, so this might be something to be prepared for. Since many women opt for hysterectomy due to significant blood loss, we often go into surgery with low red blood counts, and then, as in my case, we lose more blood during surgery, needing a transfusion.

It was simple, painless, and occurred while I laid in the bed and relaxed. I've had no negative effects from it.
