May 12, 2015
On Feb 28th I went in for heart issues..
Found my HGB and HCT to be CRITICALLY low and NO ferritin/iron in my blood..immediately sent me to hospital for blood transfusion and iron infusion..
On March 13th my ferritin was up to 77
Had 3 more iron infusions..
April 9th ferritin was up to 200 (wow)
On May 7th, it has dropped already to 75. Is it going to continue to drop? Should I be worried? Yes, 5 yrs ago I have Gastric bypass, but all that's been checked and see not reason why that would be causing this. They have me on 'multigen' once a day..
But, even with the infusion I still have the dizzy spells, tiredness, fatigue, heart palpitations..
My HGB and HCT are within the LOW normal levels.. but other numbers are off still.
How does the body use that much iron (200 down to 75 within a month)?!?!
