Of course it is reasonable to repeat the tests
You should repeat all of the laboratory tests as requested by the hematologist. Neither your husband nor the radiologist have any idea what you will be responsive too. Seeking out a hematologist that will give you the answer that YOU are looking to get is cheating yourself out of the proper work up and recommendation. There is no argument for using the data from 10 years ago, none.
The hematologist is absolutely right in asking for a fresh test,one to compare with the first test and two,to know your present status,it will give valuable data for analysis and treatment modulation
Breast surgery. 10years ago Been diagnosed a vWillebrand 1. Doctors gave me as therapy EMOSINT 0.3. have to do new test?
Thank you for the question. I would definitely follow the recommendations of your hematologist and once cleared by them to follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck.

Thank you for your question. I recommend to repeat all the tests and finish consultation with hematologist. After that you and your PS make the treatment plan. Good luck
Hello and thank you for your question. I highly recommend that you follow your hematologist's advice. I have operated on many patients with Von Willebrands, but only in careful coordination with a hematologist.
Best wishes and good luck.

? Repeat blood test for Von Willebrand's disease
ffffI think you should follow the advice of your hematologist regarding the testing/treatment for your Von Willebrand's disease. He/she will not clear you for surgery without a full work up especially since it has been 10 years since your last blood work and you are a new patient to this doctor. It's also possible that what worked in the past, may not work now or may not be sufficient because your disease has worsened over the years. It's fine to get a second opinion but I would follow their advice to avoid getting into trouble in the OR. Best wishes!
