Re: Low Ferritin ?
I found out I have anemia about 1 1/2 years post my laproscopic Nissen Fundoplication. I consider that it has been a very successful experience for me.
I'm not sure if there was an actual connection between the two or not. I do wonder if the PPI's I'm still on have had an impact as well.
When my anemia was first diagnosed, I had an endoscopy and Barium Swallow. They couldn't find anything that pointed to a cause for the anemia. I've been on iron supplements and B12 shots. They have worked to get my anemia under control. I'm still monitored, but because the supplement is working they aren't too worried at this point.
Not sure that this helps, but know you aren't alone.
