Hi 

I'm sorry to hear that you're getting more nosebleeds than normal and I can understand that this might be very scary. Although I can't answer your question, I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies. This group looks quiet at the moment so it might be best to post your question in ask a nurse where one of the specialist nurses will aim to reply in 2 working days.

If you could do with an answer quicker than that you could give the Macmillan Support Line a call on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call and normally open daily from 8am to 8pm. However, the hours might be different over New Year so click on the link I've created first to check.

I hope you can get this sorted soon
