I called my surgeon last week to ask for some antidepressants, the PA told me they dont give them and to see my PCP, she recommended a complete physical also.
I saw my PCP yesterday and she gave me some antidepressants and said they should kick in in a week or 2.She took 3 tubes of blood and some urine for labs. Her office called today to tell me that I am extremely anemic (iron) and that my b12 was on the very low end of normal.
When I had my fusion on 8/31 the neurologist that was seeing me told me that my b12 was "dangerously low" and gave me B12 shots every day that I was there, I have been taking sublingual liquid b12 daily every since discharge.
PCP's nurse said they were waiting for more lab results and would call me tomorrow to let me know if I should just start on Iron or if she would be referring me to a hematologist, and to keep taking my b12.
I am supposed to see my surgeon tomorrow but may have to re-schedule as my babysitter has a sick child and may not be able to keep Damion. We will see in the morning.
I am excited, my nieces have volunteered to come over Friday and help me paint. All of my walls are white, and I need a splash of color,(spanish Olive,on a few walls) plus I love it when they can visit
I hope you all are healing well, Gwennie, I hope to get an update from you, I know you had a lot planned pre holidays.
May God bless and keep you,
