Hi, my preop is around JUNE st and I have been working on eating my protien and taking my vitamins. since my bypass, I have had problems with enemia and have had to iron infusions. Have any of you had a surgery cancelled or post poned due to vitamin or protien deficiency or any other blood work up issue?
My worry is that I will get my pre-op blood work up and I will be enemic. I had my last tranfusion in late December. Usually I have been getting one transfusion every eight months for the past few years. The doctor sais that I do not have internal bleeding. I will have insurance again in november and I am going to do a little more testing to find out what the problem is.
Also, I can not take iron pills, even the gentle prescribed kind because it kills my stomach no matter what I do.
