Yeah, they made it about
the anemia and dehydration. They normalized the latter with fluids so they treated that as a non issue. My hemoglobin levels only dropped a point while I was there over night they said that level was stable.
I assumed they would just send me home, but this resident just handled everything terribly.
Here is a brief account of my discharge.
When he was giving me the discharge talk, I asked him if I am still bleeding a toilet bowl full of blood 10+ times a day won't my iron and hemoglobin levels just keep dropping and if that is the case, what would be some signs I'd need medical attention so I know when to come back?
He said you have nothing to worry about
, if I were in danger of that my blood pressure would be low. My last bp there was 98 over 40 I told him and he said that was low and brushed it off. He told me I just have a stomach virus and to take the iron pills, and I'll be fine. I told him I have colitis not a virus. After that he ommited It could be something else, but it wasn't uc and it would probably go away.
There was way more, but that was all I feel like typing. It's actually worse than that made it sound.
My colonoscopy was done by the first gastroenterologist I had, he attends there. They had all the records from it.
My discharge papers just said unknown GI bleed.
Sorry for the wall of text, but I feel a little better after getting some of it out at least.
