I was diagnosed with hemolytic anemia back in August I was amitted in the hospital with a blood count of 4.1. The doctor had me stay for a week on meds and hemoglobin drip for a couple of days & by the end of the week was released with a blood count of 9.1. I have been following up with a hemotologist since then and have been on predisone since 40 mg a day. As of last tuesday the doctor staring weaning me off the dam predisone. I hate that stuff and have suffered all the side effects that go with it. Weight gain, sleepless nights, night sweats, mood wings, and worse of all chipmunk cheeks!!!!
Two weeks ago the doctor started me on procrit, I go in to have my blood drawn to make sure my count is up and the nurse gives me this shot which in suppose to help my body make red cells. Well as of last week my levels at least did not drop they stayed the same so maybe this medicine is working?
Good luck!
