Iron levels dropped again after TAH

to go from 12 to 7 after surgery is so drastic...i hope youre getting your blood checked fairly regularly. under 7 is really getting dangerous. i hope the iron works for you and you feel better soon.

I just realized that you said you are still teaching. I'm sure you are tired due to anemia, but are you still supposed to be driving? Are you dizzy?

Hi Deb,
I guess I have just become used to pushing myself. I drive everywhere and do everything. I don't feel dizzy, just very tired. I am a single mom w/2 kids at college and 1 still at home. I would love to have energy again. Can't remember the last time I did. I guess I somehow find the strength to get done what needs to be done everyday.
I am going to look into seeing a hemotologist if my next iron count is low.
Thanks for your concern, for your good wishes, Dressedupinblue!

Hope for Peace, and policymuse,
Thank you for your replies. I guess it is time to get it completely checked out. It's been a week since I had the blood tests done. How often do I have it done, every week, every 2 weeks. I want to feel better! I could barely drag myself out of bed this morning, and I have a busy week here at school. Heck, every day is busy! I am going to get proactive with this!

I'm glad. Long term anemia has serious consequences, and of course it could be a sign of something that needs to be dealt with...and besides, who needs to be tired all the time? I was anemic the last months before my surgery and even that little time, much less anemic than you are, was no fun. Please let us know what your next test shows... I don't know what a reasonable number of tests is--
