hey guys, i updated everyone last week on my progress since surgery. The only thing i am still strugling with is anemia. when i was discharged from hospital the second time (for bleeding through rectum), my HGB was 8.6, the tested the next week and it went up to 9.6 but the last week it dropped to 9.2. also, my white blood count has dropped from 6.5 to 4. I had more blood work drawn today, so should get results in 2 days. I am not bleeding from the rectom ( at least from what I can tell) but I still get very tired, dizzy at times, headaches after walking around a lot.
The surgeon released me today and said i can go back to work in 2 weeks as he feels that the numbers will keep coming up. they just take time with crohn's surgery. My GI doctor is the one ordering the blood work and monitoring the levels. he wants to start 6MP but wont until the HGB comes up.
Should I be worried that something is wrong from the surgery or something else is wrong?? The GI dr said he might do an upper endoscopy if things do not improve to check for bleeding ulcers and such. Any thoughts? I am worried, i thought i would have felt much better byt now as the surery was over 4 weeks ago.
