I am a blood donor in Calif. I recently came to the Fort Worth, Texas area and wanted to donate plasma and was turned down.
I'm having a hard time understanding and can't seem to get a reasonable answer from the company that collects the plasma. I have a ccs in situ cancer, and Bowen's disease, which was diagnosed in the 1980's.
I have never had chemo, radiation or any type of medication. When I did have a flare up, the cancer was cut out and stitched, and now it would be lasered, which hasn't had to happen for several years.
I see a doctor at UCSF MT Zion now every nine months. It was every six months for the first few years. I expect it to go to every year upon my next visit. Does anyone know why I shouldn't be able to give plasma, when my blood is totally acceptable?
