Is It Normal Drop Of Hemoglobin After 2 Weeks Of Blood Transfusion
I had a blood transfusion due to low hemoglobin. My iron level was 6 and is now 9 after two units. I still feel weak and really tired after 3 days?
Of course you do: You are still seriously anemic. Be proactive. Insist on an explanation of how you got this sick and what wil be done to restore you to health. If you have a bleeding stomach ulcer, what will be done? If you have hemolysis, what is the cause? G6PD status? Were you malnourished? You deserve a full explanation. ...Read more
If i will be undergoing myomectomy surgery -fundal fibroids ( 3) , in my 30's, what is normal hb (hemoglobin)?Do i need blood transfusion ?
About 12-16 g/dL.: Normal hemoglobin for an adult female is between 12-16 g/dl (7.4-9.9 mmol/l). You might need blood, like 2 units for your surgery to replace any blood lost. If you are anemic, which might be the case in these circumstances, you might need more. At any rate, your doctor, to prepare you for surgery might talk to you about autologous transfusion, or donating blood to yourself. Best of luck. ...Read more

Not many: Your heme-onc dr is an expert in this, and should have discussed (or tried) a gmcsf injection to stimulate your body's red blood cell production. But, many cancer pts do not respond to it--either due to the nature of the cancer or the treatment or both. If not amenable to induction of production, then will need transfusion every so many weeks. I see many pts who do this, and once used to it are ok. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
