Please describe the events that led to a diagnosis of hemophilia. Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Mark 5:34, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: December 14

PTT (partial thromboplastin time) was high in routine test before surgery. Surgery was postponed until factor assay was evaluated and I was later diagnosed with hemophilia C. Von Willebrand's disease was ruled out. I have had 3 surgeries with no major bleeding therefore no blood transfusion required.
