Not sure if anyone remembers but I had a post about
a month or so ago about
Gma having bouts of D with blood. She is still bleeding and her blood count is now down to 8.2. She turned in a stool sample a couple weeks ago and luckily there are no parasites. Today I brought her back to my GI and he did a rectal exam and was quite shocked at the amount of blood that was on his glove. So he scheduled her for a Cscope on Tuesday - not sure what time yet. Because her kidneys are still in a bad way she is going to use the Half Golytely (or however you spell it) and according to him, it's easier on the kidneys - does this sound right?
She is also supposed to stop taking her iron supplements 3 days before the scope but if she is anemic and I whole heartedly believe that the iron supplements are keeping her from having an immediate transfusion. So wouldn't she become more anemic by stopping them?
