How much is 300 cc of blood

Home from a LATVH on 12/12, feeling tired but pretty good. Reading over my discharge papers and it said I had 300 cc of blood loss. Is that a lot? What is normal? I didn't think to ask my doctor if I had to have blood transfusion. the surgery took longer than thought because I had scarring from 2 c-sections and I also had endo in there (I never knew I had it?). any help would be appreciated.

I believe 60cc is equal to 1 fluid ounce. If you had a blood transfusion it would be in your operative report Rest up and as my Doc told me: when you get done resting rest some more And congrats on becoming a new punctured

Scarlett,

I am an OB/GYN nurse. 300cc is a pretty standard amount of blood loss. As long as your blood count was good before surgery, you could lose that much and not need a transfusion. Did the paper have your labs on it? That may what your count was (listed as HGB or hemaglobin).

300 cc is normal

Scarlett,

As a former ob/gyn-nurse (turned psychologist), I'll second Angie's comment. 300 cc is normal and very unlikely to require a transfusion.

Best wishes,
Renny

Thanks so much! I never did understand all that "metric" stuff I was supposed to have learned in school! I was anemic before the surgery, and was taking iron to build me up, so I'm not sure what my count was during surgery. Well, I feel okay now, and the doctor didn't tell me to continue the iron, so I guess I'm fine! Thanks again!
