Hi, I don't know if any of you remember but I posted a while ago when I was due to have surgery and Low B12 and Iron. My surgery was cancelled as the anaesthetist wasn't happy. Anyway, I'm due the surgery on Thursday and have had some blood results back and the B12 is >1500 Ferritin is 29 but my Folate is now 3.0. I have never supplemented Folate and they have been 4.0 in July, 4.4 in August and now dropped to 3.0. Question is, will this level affect surgery prospects again? Also, would the rise and drop be because I had the loading doses? I went from loading doses to weekly for 4 weeks and now I'm 3 weeks since the last one so I have been taking Methylcobalamin stripes 5000 ug daily for the last week. I have told GP that if she/haematologist won't agree to up my injections I will buy them and self medicate.
Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, I really can't concentrate!
