I am slightly allergic to the iron infusion, so I'm taking a lot of Slow Fe, Vitamin C, eating beef and spinach and resting more than usual.
It's sort of a short-term solution just to get to the surgery.
I am working 3/4 time at work since the long days were too much - I kept blacking out, which was alarming to everyone.
If it gets worse, I can do the iron as an in-patient. My last labs were much better - except Ferritin is still only 3.
I spoke to my GI who is doubtful that all the bleeding is just GYN related. He wants to squeeze in a scope before the surgery...never a dull moment! (I keep going off the Pentasa so feeling guilty about
that; will probably start again - the 16 pills a day was killing me.)
I hope your Wed appointment goes well.
