I had some blood drawn today because I just haven't been feel even remotely back to myself...even post surgical. I'm sleeping like 19 hours out of the day, barely eating, still SOB. My blood counts came out off, but it wasn't my H and H, which is what I expected. I still think I have a bleed somewhere. Ive seen my op report, so I know they had to give me units of packed RBC's, and my H and H were both low during my hospital stay which is to be expected. But now my platelet counts are high, and they were normal even pre and post op? I'm waiting for my surgeon to call...it could be nothing. I'm just worried about it being a clot or a problem with my bone marrow. I have also been running a low grade fever everynight for the past week (about 100.8), but my WBC count was fine. Has anyone had this happen???
