Hi my doctor doesn’t believe I have vwd even though i was diagnosed when i was young… due to this he did nothing when i had 3 teeth removed… i disided not to drink water in order to slow my blood down… good thing to because the dentist said i was bleeding like a normal person… i hadnt had water in 24 hrs so i was quite dehydrated… if i hadnt been it could have been bad besides this i do like my doctor so what should I do

Hi @Mango! I’m glad that the procedure went well. You said that you like your doctor, but that they don’t believe that you have vwd. If your doctor doesn’t believe that you have vwd, how can you expect to be managed appropriately? Have you considered a second opinion?
