update

hi everyone: i hadnt posted in a while, but two days before New Years I started bleeding from my nose, mouth and urinating blood as well. I ended up having a fillin dr. tell me to stay off the aspirin (i have von willebrands). I bled for 6 days, then went to my dr. who also found according to a sonogram that I have a nodule and a cyst on my thyroid. I have to see my cardiologist this week and my rheum. and neuro next month and endo. in six months. All this just seems so confusing because its hard to balance bleeding and clotting.

  • Hello, I am so very sorry you are having such an awful time. I hope you have lots of people around you to help with this and I hope the team copy info between each other, keep posting and letting us know how you are. Mary F x

  • Thank you Mary, I appreciate all the info and support from my friends at Hughes. Here in the US they dont seem to have as much on it as over where you are. I see a rheum and neuro and they call it antiphospholipid syndrome and just basically watch it through my symptoms. My blood is not monitored weekly but every few months. I have an unsupportive husband but my children and friends are loving and great. Thanks to you.

  • Hi

    There is the APSFA.org in the USA. A lady called Tina is the President and they publish a very useful, quarterly newsletter with intersting scholarly and anecdotal articles.

    Best wishes.
