On aFriday I was talking to a lady whontold me her mother recently passed, she had colon cancer. I toldnher I was sorry.. She said she did not die from the cancer , it was from a blood trasfuson. She got a septic infection.
Then on Friday, a friend from my support group, went into septic shocknwhile getting a transfusion. He had a blood cancer . It was last one to bring his blood count back up. aHe was in a trial and his count drpped so did transfusions to get his levels back up.
I had no idea that they could be dedly. So many people here have them, they just seem
so routine. Both had ports, but it was only the lady n her 50's that her daughter said it was from an infection in the port?
I am so amazed how much I keep learning about things I never much thought about!
