I had an appointment still with the cardiologist yesterday, originally for surgery clearance. I did not want the Lupron without her approval. I asked Mike to drive me there because I had been getting pretty dizzy. Good thing I did that, because I basically fainted right after I got in the car.
The rest of the day went downhill from there.
We decided that the take iron and the Lupron option was not going to work. It would take at least 2 weeks to start to recover my iron stores. Obviously, I could not stay so weak that long, I would have been at risk for shock and other issues. Plus the Lupron can cause blood pressure problems. My original OB not only disagreed when we called him, he was quite rude about it.
So my doctor called on a different OB and got me in to see him right away.
That doctor saw me and immediately admitted me to the hospital for a blood trsnsfusion. We will be doing surgery on Friday most likely; the ultrasound results from late last night will tell us more. The transfusion helped a LOT and I feel much better today compared to yesterday!
