When the test is done,the next question is ,should it be An SS FOETUS,Will you be willing to abort. how many times will you be willing to abort. Its expensive and may be available in Nigeria.

    Hmmm sir, aside aborting a foetus is there no other way, or would you advice a break up between the couple so they can look for AA to settle down with.

    Anothet option available is to have babies and have them have bone marrow transplants if they are SS..I had a patient who once had it done for 40million naira outside the country .from my experience with SS disease ,I can tell you its a painful cycle for the Children and in families where they have SS children with frequent crisis, there is a lot of relationship strain.
