One more problem to deal with
I was given my blood test results and I have macrocytosis (large red blood cells). The nurse said it could be from a B12 deficiency and the Dr suspects it so he is sending me for more blood tests... I feel like a pincushion lately!
From what I read on the net a few things can cause it, folic acid deficiency, B12 deficiency, alcoholism (not me by the way :), medicines, blood loss and I forget the rest.
Anyone have info on this? Any ideas what might happen. Will I get a lot of blood taken?
I asked the nurse and she knew almost nothing so I figured I would ask my HW experts which probably know more than her!
