Since I have B- blood, what kind did I get in my transfusion?

Depends on the circumstances but you either received B neg or O neg blood.

If the transfusion was from an emergency situation, say a car accident, the hospital may have transfused O neg blood until the blood bank determined your blood type and then they would have switched you to B neg.

But if it was a routine transfusion your type would have been determined well before and you would have received B neg only.

It was not a sudden emergency; I had a high risk pregnancy and they recommended a transfusion after the cesarean. So it was B neg. It's funny to think about getting someone else's blood, like who was it and what are they like? I also have a cadaver graft in my foot-- somewhere there is an immortal soul limping around heaven or hell.... ;)
