Maybe, it depends on the type of surgery and the recovery period.
If you have surgery planned within 84 days before when you hope to donate blood, you may need to wait before donating. Please call us on 13 14 95 to discuss your eligibility.
How long you need to wait to give blood after surgery depends on a number of things. These include the medical condition the surgery was for, the type of surgery, and the recovery period. Call us on 13 14 95 and we’ll be able to work out when you can donate.
Also, if you also received a blood transfusion during or after your surgery, you’ll have to wait at least 12 months from the transfusion before you donate blood.
