I had a blood transfusion on May 27 for severe anemia. They gave me two units. My Hgb went back up to 10.1. My doc is having me get weekly blood draws for a month, then they space out. I just had my second check and so far my Hgb is stable...I know that means staying about the same. I'm taking my iron three times daily.

Here's the question...If my Hgb is going to fall, when does it happen after the transfusion?

They never determined why I was anemic in the first place and I did the whole GI workup from one end to another. I am a bit concerned.

One more question...anemia isn't the only thing I have going on, but is it normal to be this fatigued after a transfusion? I have more energy and endurance which I love, but I am dragging later in the afternoon more than usual.

Thanks for helping me and being willing to answer my questions!!!
