Following up on the previous post: It looks like maybe I can donate blood again after all! I was looking for the answer to a different question about blood donation, and stumbled across this information: the limit for time spent in Europe isn't the six months I was told, but five years! (I don't doubt the information I had, I think the rule changed in the meantime--it's been several years.)

(Aw man, now I gotta go donate blood, and I don't like needles. But I'll do it, because it's one of those things that's good to do.)

In your research did you see anything about how long after surgery one has to wait?

There may well have been something of the sort, but I was skimming over anything that didn't look like it applied to me.
