after being quite ill, they had her blood results on the screen from August and asked her if she was taking iron supplements, we both looked puzzled as to why, and was then told that she was very very anemic and her g.p should have contacted her in Aug to start the iron, they didn`t contact her, and her iron levels should be i think between 18-30 her`s was 1, the prof was so shocked her mouth fell open as she couldn`t understand how my daughter was still walking about and trying to function in a "normal" way, all hell was let loose once i told my husband he got straight on the phone to the doctor and as per usual it was pass the buck and nobody would take the blame, typical! i`m calmer today than i was yesterday, i couldn`t stop crying as this is now the 2nd time there has been a major cock up and she has been seriously ill and we nearly lost her, pure negligence in my eyes. The problem now being is she is due to have an operation on the 12th Nov and i`m not sure if this is still possible with her iron being so low, she is on 210 mg iron pills 3 times daily, does anyone know if this would still be able to go ahead. Thank you
