when I had my first half knee replaced , they said I had Unknown antibodies in my blood, they asked if I had a transfusion in previous surgeries to which I replied no. So they sent it off to get matched and that was that, . 8/9 weeks latter I had pre op for second knee, same thing, antibodies, sent bloods off got it matched. Had surgery, end of. Then up to now , 11 weeks on , I have to have my jaw washed out, because of osteoarthritis , really could do with out it to be honest have had enough, . But anyway I had my pre op , and again they saying about antibodies apparently rare have taken bloods 4 times over the last 3 weeks as they can't find what they are, . What I am hoping is that somebody on here will be able to tell me what all the fuss is about, as I keep asking but can't get a strait answer , they took four more files of blood yesturday and are sending up to London, as can't find what they are, and I have to say I am now getting quite worried. My surgery is on Friday, they have told me that it should go ahead, depending what comes back, What does that mean? Should I be worried?
