Hello Woodmere, my husband has hymolytic anemia. He had knee replacement in May of 2007. His blood was checked before his hospital stay and everything was normal at that time. In June 2007, he had chest pain and had to have a stent put in. He just could not seem to get over the fatigue. So about a month later he went to the doctor because of fatigue, dizziness, weakness and fast heart rate. They immediately sent him to the hospital for a blood transfusion. He was diagnosed as having hymolytic anemia. Since then, he has had 6 blood transfusions. They seem to bring his blood level up a little for 3 or 4 weeks. His blood level ranges from 7 to what it is now is 9.3 He has been on prednisone which he hates. It make him eat so much. His face swells. He can't sleep and he gets depressed that things are not going to get any better. It makes me feel better that he is not the only one. That I can get on the internet and read about the problems others have about this disease because the doctors don't seem to know alot about this disease. They do not know how the patients feel. My prayers are for you and everyone that is coping with this disease. Praying for a cure.
