Blood Donation

Recommended Posts


Plasma is a piece of piss, Panda. (now try saying that when drunk)

I've been roped in to alternating plasma and platelets which means fortnightly donations... beautiful veins apparently. Got to be good for something.

Lucky you.. I got told they'll try plasma but she thinks I have small veins so she'll have to see how it goes..

And pics with glasses.. I'd have to check..

Any other requests for pics while I'm at it Ralph?

If homosexual people can't donate how come

U did tab? Lol

In all serious that a tad archaic isn't it.. I mean your exactly right...

I know heaps of people with a much worse and higher risk sexual history than homosexuals...

And besides the first time I donated they took extra test viles to test for that anyway... Can't remember if they did after that or not...

Well done pandy pants... I feel so odd because at the moment my blood volume is up by an extra 50% because of being pregnant and it's all gonna be wasted in bleeding after surgery and your body destroying it after a few weeks.. Wish they could take some out while I'm hooked up to the drip anyway... Would be handy...

Will have to ask doc how long until I can donate ...

My parents have taken over though ... They now both donate every few months since I started donating... My having cancer recently though can't donate for a long while now... She's pretty Devo.

The lady reckons Australia is only getting about 1/3 of its blood donated and we are buying the rest off the yanks.. Not friggin cheap either..

Did mine yesterday - took out 470ml they told me :nod:

I'm enquiring to see what it would take to register FordXR6Turbo.com as an entity to record donations against - unless someone has done it already for some other club and can give some guidance on it.

:beerchug:

SRS Hat on,

Good on you all for donating. I'm unable to donate due to the treatment I received for a blood blood borne virus I contracted a few years ago (and before [email protected] jumps in, not its not Aids), My father is AB -ve (which is quite rare) and routinely donates as does my Mum and Wife. This topic is very near and dear to my heart as member of my family recently had two transfusions which saved his life.

TL;DR..? Thanks to all that give up their time to donate Well Done!

Got my card last week. I'm O+ which means I can give to any other + but only take O-+

Pretty good deal, O+ works with many blood types but if I ever need it apparently O is pretty common.

Until then I actually never knew my blood type.

There's like a little pie graph of percentages of people with blood groups etc... It's pretty interstin but ye Pauline from memory o blood is the most needed coz it can be put with so many other types ...

On the other side of it ... Last week I had to sign my form to allow for blood transfusion during my surgery if needed... My bloods fine to donate but I do take longer to clot than anyone else so will be interesting... Hopefully I don't need it and someone else can have it :)

So pissed off right now.

Had my blood donation appointment today. Everything was going fine until the woman who was putting the needle in fuxking screwed it up, and hit a nerve.

She didn't realize until 35ml had been taken, and the flow rate dropped to zero.

Cause they had already taken 35ml they couldn't start again on another vein, and then I was told that despite all this, I still have to wait 4 months til I can try again. Can't even do platelets or plasma, because I haven't done a whole blood donation in the past year.

So pissed off right now. Plus my arm is hurting so much.

All the times that I used to donate in geelong, and this never happened. Stupid werribee.

Pazz couldn't donate either, cause of the meds he's on for his ulcers.

I couldn't remember my blood type, cause I was told what it was 8 years ago, but they were able to confirm it for me from the system.

A+, cause I'm awesome :P (and the same as my sister!!!)

Next time I donate I'm heading to geelong.
