Blood Transfusion Recovery Time
It depend: It depends what you mean by being active, for example playing sport, or up and around. For the sport, I think one week because after you give you loose volume of your blood and it needs some time to adjust for that loss. For minor activity if do not feel dizzy or weak, do it as far you feel okay.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a blood transfusion is their anything to worry about this was my first time I'm anemic it been a week just a little worried?
Is 8 weeks of iron infusions enough? Ater this time hemoglobin decreased to 7.6. As a result, I had a blood transfusion.
Something's wrong: If iron infusions over eight weeks didn't fix your anemia, it's either not due to iron deficiency or you still have serious blood loss. I also see that somebody is giving you vitamin B12 for whatever reason. Please forgive my frankness. If there is not a misunderstanding, please get with a hematologist.

Your primary Doc 1st: There are many reasons for anemia. Your physician team likely will evaluate for blood loss (typically in the stool), or blood breakdown (meaning you are making enough blood but also you are destroying the cells as well), versus your blood factory not making enough blood. After the initial evaluation, your doctor can best direct you to the gastroenterologist, hematologist, or other specialist.See 1 more doctor answer
My husband has to have frequent blood transfusions. Endo with cauterazation has been done several times. He has end stage liver disease. Where els?

Many esld patients need frequent endo for emergent bleeding control - especially for varix (banding is more effective). Tips / shunting - is life saving when indicated. The frequency of transfusion and endo maybe reduced if he is medically optimized.See 1 more doctor answer
