Hi, I have been anemic for well over a year. Recently my iron levels have been sliding down, down, down.
My rheumatologist called me as soon as he saw my most recent blood test results. He wants me to get to a hemotologist as soon as possible so they can start getting my iron levels back up. The hemotologist also is trying hard to figure out how it got so low!
He scheduled me for tests on Friday. Chest x-ray, cat scan of abdominal and pelvic area. I already have completed a colonoscopy and a upper scope to rule out any internal bleeding in my digestive track.
Has anyone else faced this? What are they docs looking for with the cat scan and x-ray?
