Thanks FLFLOWERGIRL for responding :). I had a colonoscopy above 4 years ago and that was clean, and I had an endoscopy done about 5 months ago for GERD and discovered that I had a small hiatal hernia, so I'm on omeprazole for that. So, it was decided by my hematologist that the anemia was caused by heavy periods (soaking through super plus tampons every 2 hours for the first 3 days of every period). After going over the pros and cons of an ablation verses a hysterectomy (I'm 42 and done having kids), I've decided to go with the hysterectomy; but before that can be done, I had to have the transfusion.
The decision to have a hysterectomy (keeping the ovaries) instead of an ablation with tubal ligation was just made today, so I will more than likely find out tomorrow when the surgery is scheduled.

I tried to get out of having the blood transfusion, but my gyno said that because I was so anemic already and because there is some blood loss during surgery, he was afraid I wouldn't be able to recover from the surgery (his words). I'm now glad that I did it. I feel much better. I hope you continue to feel better, too. :)
