I posted about two weeks ago. Just an update, on what my levels were,
ferritin 4
hg 9.1
hmocrit 23

I don't know what my total iron was.
I have had a large adenoma removed from my duodenum in April and I am having a follow up in September for that. Because of this intestinal issues, I have been taking omeprazole since November. My GI doctor said I could stop taking them because my stomach doesn't show irritation at this time. Although, my stomach remains very sensitive.

I am going to a hematologist for my low levels, and I am going to gyn on the 12th for heavy periods.

I was scheduled for an iron infusion two weeks ago and my hg had raised to 9.8 and ferritin to an 8. So the doc said to try the oral iron for a month to see if could raise my levels. But them I started my period and felt as though I was back to ground zero. I am now having a difficult time with the oral iron. I was taking it with vit. C and I have stopped that because I have stomach issues and some nausea. I still try to take the oral iron, sometimes causing stomach distress adding to the fatigue, and many other symptoms that accompany iron deficient anemia.

Should I try to continue taking oral iron, and try to take omeprazole to help the stomach distress. I have an appointment with my hematologist on the 22 of August. I am going to try an oral iron today and see what it does.

Any suggestions ?
