I just found your site and I am hoping that I can find my answer here. I have a rare blood type (can't remember which) I believe I can take anyone's blood which may not have anything to do with my problem. I had major surgery 4 years ago that went poorly. I bled out and spent 22 days in hospital 10 of those in ICU. While I was in ICU I was given several blood transfusions with no issues however while going in recently for some other surgery I was told that my blood had changed over the past 4 years with a diagnosis of Hughes Syndrome. I was told this is very unusual because people's blood doesn't just change. I was wondering if it is possible to get this syndrome through a blood transfusion?
