low blood count

Hi everyone-
I just wanted to give a warning to folks to have their blood count checked and discuss it with their doctors prior to surgery. I had a great surgery-shorter than expected, barely any blood losss, and due to spinal anesthesia no pain at all. Then the blood count dropped, and I felt HORRIBLE the second day-not due to the surgery, but due to the low count. Just make sure your iron is good enough and your count is high enough-they got it under control, no transfusion needed, and by that evening I was weak, but no longer nauseous with a racing heart.
Otherwise it wasn't too bad-much better than I expected, if you could've skipped Day 2 and the Awful No Good Very Bad Blood Count.
You're all going to make it! I promise!
Love,
Amy

Thank you for the heads-up about the blood count. Good info to be aware of and to discuss this issue with your MD's.

So sorry you had to deal with it first handed but I am so glad you are doing better now.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
