Ok new GP cursory glance says fine. I query size of rbc as in May said to be "15" No no you must have microcytes as blah blah 120 days, less iron. So size small not like B12/PA correct
I spot asterisk and 17.1 correct me but Macrocytes yes?
I spot asterisk and ask about heam 114 /115 base number
No haem fine.
Will start you on liquid Ferrous Sulphate as I notice you had a reaction to it in 2007. Me, no recollection nor hubby.
3 x 5 ml day. But start one 5ml per day for week. But dont start until after biopsy on 20th as it stains bowel. Me will it impact biopsy result though? Shrug of shoulders.
Me well rather than wait another two weeks, I feel so ill, can I ring path lab. Good idea quoth she.. I rang lab asked question. Answer... "no idea love".
Got letter of support for sedation for biopsy, refused and bullied last time had endoscopy, so defo not doing that. Sedation or I walk. Now as I have only been re suffering gluten for 18days anyway, which I know is not long enough anyway and because Im sick of this...
TA DARRRR I took two spoons iron (so far...) sep by several hours yesterday and today self injected B 12 whilst on MRI premesis (OT) appointment ( they have an A n E) as a precaution against mis hap and
SOD 'em ALLLLL
My health and well being are more important to me than thier pussy footing around I feel really ill. Saturday night when in bed new pins and needles in legs Sunday, spaced out head, nooo I am tee total, wise guys, and very odd feeling almost like out of body experience. So much so stayed in chair all night scared to go to bed! After GP blah and getting hard copy of results above, decided "I treat patient not numbers" a catch phrase to repeat not actually believe in.
So ditched em. Folate asked for in blood taken Monday plus Mag Calc ?potassium and B12 ( ha ha) ignored my quote of not in cells.
So, once more help please. Your take on bloods above and then advice of what I must take as OTC supplements. I shall follow your line re Folate as result not in yet. Will do D as down to 20 something, noted but not acted upon last visit. Do not take any vits at present except one Vit D capsule prescribed to top me up but not enough according to last bloods.
One other thing on last, bloods, Oct. Gastro asked for IFA but on report not given says Not requested 😡😡 I read it on form.
Sorry, lot to read but burned my boats will take iron, all being well, if not can I get iron injections as well as SI B12? Shall confess to supplementing B12 but not SI, Im not that daft.
So looking forward to no neuropathy, pain or fog and to having a bit of energy and life back.
Yours, reclining on my sofa
Your wisdon very much appreciated
