I was so nervous going in since I planned to talk to him about having surgery if the anemia did not get under control. I am not very sick so I did not think he would agree and it would be a lot harder. So we talked and he asked how many times I go to the bathroom. He was not happy with the number at all. He said it was not under control at all and he could see why my blood count would drop that low without me seeing a lot of blood. So he started talking about different drugs I could take and and their side effects. I was shaking and sweating and asked him when surgery is usually considered. He said when drugs dont work or if I have no other choice but steroids. I do not like putting people on steroids. I told him how I did not want the drugs with scary side effects and that I would rather have surgery then take those drugs. He said that some people do prefer surgery and if I wanted to go that way I sure could. He then asked if I wanted a consult right now. I thought about it and we talked some more. We decided I am going to have another colonoscopy to see where the bleeding is from then go from there. I feel so much better knowing that I can say I want surgery now and he will say ok I will set you up an appointment.
