ferritin

:? Hi

Been to clinic today - oops gfr 22 hb 10.3 (not bad) ferritin 29 - they're not impressed.

is 29 too low?

So it's 3 weeks of iron transfusions (is that the correct word?).

Anaemia nurse is leaving me until the last of the iron to see if I need to re-start EPO. My HB is borderline at present.


Anti -coag nurse is spluttering that my INR levels are taking too long to come down - .

Dr has different thoughts -no problem with my HB or ferritin and grf is on the slide so it's a 2 month review. INR 3.3 - that's fine.


Sometimes I do wonder! They all have their different opinions of how c****** I am - bless their white coats! :roll: :roll: :roll:

At least I dont feel as c*** at 22 gfr this time or maybe I've just got used to it! hahaha :D :D :D :D :D just very very tired.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift, that's why they call it present
