I wondered about the antibodies because its two different labs. The first lab had a list of 6 antibodies, this new lab says no antibodies. I don't know how that works though, something else to learn about when I'm not so tired.
My Dr, won't give 3 units on the same day. 2 one day, 1 the next day. I get Lasix between the 1st and the 2nd. Don't need it with 1 unit. I get Pre meds before the blood. Benadryl, Tylenol,Hydro Cortisone.
