Hi,

Omega and Khalifa were recommended phlebotomy for their kids by their doctors after they had undergone Bone Marrow Transplant. They can provide you with the information of how it went if they did it.

It should go like a normal blood donation over several sessions while keeping your blood counts in check.

Take care, Peace!
