Hi to you all,
I have been anaemic for a year now, when I was tested I had a blood count of 8, the doctor said it was due to my bleeding hemeroids.
He referred me to a specialist and also prescribed iron tablets 3 time a day.
The specialist banded them but I started bleeding again about a month afterwards.
Since then I have also had a endoscopy and a colonoscopy to make sure there was nothing more going on, also lots of blood test. The only thing he found was iron deficiency aneamia. When I go to the toilet the bowl is full of blood afterwards. It sprays out of me.
I have now come full circle and last week they were banded again as a temporary measure while I wait for an operation to have them removed.
The doctor says he is not going to remove the but stitch the veins leading to the hemeroids, it could be a few months though before I have the op.
I feel tired all of the time, my memory is really bad, cannot concentrate, dizzy spells and I am starting to feel depressed.
My job is a computer system administrator but i feel like I have forgot how to do anything it's as if my memory has been erased it is really worrying me. I have taken time off for a few weeks so I can rest.
Can anyone tell me is it normal for my brain to be so badly effected, if so is there anything more I can take to help me recover faster.
Any food or drink I can take with my iron tablets. How long will it take for my blood count to reach normal levels.
Thanks for reading.
