i was due to have a tummy tuck and lipo today and after recieving blood results
the surgeon decided that he couldnt do the operation cos i am anemic he says that my bloods were 10.2 and he wasnt happy to do the surgery as it could cause complications... can u tell me how long i will have to take treatment before i can have surgery....
It shouldnt be too long. The doc gave you iron pills, right? True ferritin takes months to get it up even a few points. But the hem will come up a bit quicker. Have it retested in a month or so and see how it is.
You def dont want to have surgery while being low in iron. I was anemic when I had a c section and lost a ton of blood...and blood for six weeks after. I became SO sick that it took MONTHS to feel six months. I am finally feeling better, but still have some syptoms like tiredness.
