I have two blood clotting conditions .
Antiphospholipid syndrome and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. I was diagnosed with these conditions approx 10-12 years ago after the birth of my 4th child whom I had a normal birth but ended up having an emergency subtotal hysterectomy due to uterine atony . I had to receive 10 pints of blood to due the enormous amount of blood loss . After the birth I developed a pulmonary embolism on my lung due to surgical stockings not being applied and needing bed rest after the traumatic events after giving birth .
My question is could I have acquired any if not both of the blood conditions I have now due to the blood transfusions I received .
I had never had any blood conditions prior to the massive blood transfusion . Plus no problems in previous pregnancies except an emergency c.s with my first child due to her being in distress .
General Information: My itp is mild and I have only ever had one blood clot after childbirth .
