O RH NEGATIVE blood needed (URGENT)
My husband Ian is in Aydin Adnan Menderes University Hospital as it has been discovered that he needs heart bypass surgery. His operation is scheduled for Tuesday 12 May, but he has just phoned to say that although the hospital have 4 packs of O RH NEGATIVE blood, they also need ‘fresh’ blood in case it is needed during his operation.

So we have been told to find four people who have O NEGATIVE blood, to bring them to the hospital so they can be tested and then arrange for them to be at the hospital on Tuesday, the day of his op.

Unfortunately, only 16% of the population are Rh negative, so I am sending out this appeal for O NEGATIVE donors. Everyone I have spoken to in the O Group is O Positive (which is my blood group) and anyway, reading this thread, it looks as though Brits would not be accepted anyway!

Having read this thread out to him, he is going ask about a tannoy request being made for his blood type. We are happy to pay. What a nightmare for people with rare blood goups. I just don’t know what else to do. Any suggestions???? :wow:

Im really sorry to hear that Val. I've asked the familly but they are predominately RH Positve. 0- is a universal blood type and can be given to anyone, the figures for Turkish nationals with this blood type is only 3.9% of the population. Do they not have any at Kizilay?

I am sure they will get a good response from the tannoy. In any event I will keep asking around.

Take care xx

Sorry to hear about this problem Val. I have no ideas about getting the blood but just hope everything goes ok and it's not needed.

Hi Valian

I am O Neg blood and would willingly help you, but unfortunately I live in Alanya which is miles away from you. I didn't realise it was such a rare blood type in Turkey. My thoughts are with your husband and yourself and good wishes for a speedy recovery.

I'm the wrong blood and in the wrong Country, but boy do I wish you all the best. I hope this forum provides enough donors.

Thank you all very much for your messages. I have been in touch with both Kym and Michelle.

Also the Surgeon has confirmed that they are happy to take blood from tested foreigners for a 'live' donation and that it is only Turkish Crescent (the blood bank) who will not accept donations of foreign blood.

So if anyone around the Didim area has O neg blood and would be willing for me to take them for a couple of trips to Aydin, please give me a ring on: 05367 218911

Suggest someone post a message on the Kusadasi biz forum (I'm banned). Lots of foreigners living in Kus read that forum.

Yes Debbie but who cares.

Here's the link in case someone else would do the honours.


P.S. to Mushtaq: I'm sorry if posting the lin has broken a TLF rule, but I reckon you'll forgive me since it's an emergency.
