Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your bleeding. Can i ask was the bleeding in the form of the blood being oozed out or was it spurting out? Also have you noticed dilated veins on your legs more than usual? Lastly do you have numbness tingling in your legs or any ulcers in your legs or feet?
