Yes I have problem with my iron. I become anemic a lot. I refuse to take iron pills because they constipate. But I try to take spinach(green foods) and a daily vitamins that help. I have had some complications. I have had two bleeding ulcers that bled.


One last year.....that one I caught in time. The other one 3-4 years ago and I need blood transfusion.


But iron I am always having problem with....and the shots hurt. I also b12.......and a lot of other vitamins. I know medical insurance ad not many can afford. I am fortunate. But try to take your vitamins. I am 10 years out.....and believe me I rely on my vitamins a lot.

But yes.....Iron and b-12, calcium I am always need to bring it up.


They did other blood work and I need to increase my foliate, beta carotene and my protein BIG TIME.

Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option!

I have to admit that I have only had my bloodwork run once or twice. Bad I know.
