Dear D Keener,
Bruises can occur in someone on dialysis
due to Heparin
used during dialysis. She also is likely to be on aspirin
and/ or clopidogrel
(most heart patients would be on this ) which would again contribute to bruising. Her doctors would check her platelets and blood coagulation parameters, if bruising continues to occur and modify therapy accordingly. It is unlikely to hold up the transplant.
