Default 20 viles of blood! Oh my...

Okay so today I went to hospital to do my last lab work before surgery. I had an EKG and Chest xray done too. I knew they would be taking more then 4 viles of blood but never in my mind did I think "20"!!! Yikes I wanted to pass out! What I want to know is why so much? Also when I go for my blood level checkups after surgery will they have to take as many everytime???? Please say "no"....

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Looks like a lot when spread over 20 viles, but really not that much. Even 20 viles is MUCH less than a pint (donation ammount)
