I have been anemic for the past 4 years and have also had every procedure under the sun to remedy the situation minus a lower double-balloon endoscopy and actual surgery. A camera capsule test did find an ulcer somewhere in the ileum however it cannot be pin pointed and there as been no luck reaching it with a standard colonoscopy.
Has anyone out there heard of a case like this and if so what can be done about it. I am beginning to think that being anemic is something I am going to have to accept long term.
GotIron--My mom recently had bleeding but they were unable to find. When they checked the small bowel they did a different type of test, I don't know the name of it off hand. I think it was some kind of drink and x-ray that can take up to 5 hrs. Maybe you have had this one already??? Perhaps a different test is called for. Good luck. Keep us posted.

What type of anemia do you have? FLFLOWERGIRL:)
i have iron deficiency anemia. My latest blood work had me with a hgb of 7 and an hcc of 21% and intestinal bleeding has been confirmed
They found bleeding from the small bowel area with me but when I swallowed the camera for the second time it had stopped. My ferritin was 3 and it jumped to 54 after taking feosol for 2 months so my gastro doctor was happy with that. My problem is still elevated liver enzymes and after many tests they cannot find out why.
