I had Anemia due to chronic rectal bleeding in February caused by diverticulas. My hemoglobin went from 15+ to 8.4 in about 4 hours and I passed out in the ER was given Vitamin K shot and a transfusion. Two weeks later-- I had half of my colon removed. When I was released from the Hospital, my hemoglobin was 10.4 since then I've been taking several types of Iron supplements and having blood work done monthly( CBC &Ferritin level).

My hemoglobin yesterday was 15.2 and that's good but my Ferritin (iron protein) level is 24.9 up from 14.2 on May 6. The normal range as indicated on my Lab report is 27 to 300.

I don't see my regular Doc for 2 1/2 months and I'm recovering well but is there anything other than continue to take Iron and take those vitamins that act synergistically with iron( C, Bs, folic acid) to raise my ferritin level that I need to be doing???
