Re: Anemia Causing Swelling?
Last year about this time I was way low Iron, Hgb and Creat. I had alot of extra swelling. I wear 20-30mm graduated compression below knee due to circulation problems and still my feet and legs were swelling. The increase I had may of been due to combo of health problems.
They went ahead with Blood tansfusions, took 4 units. Course to help get rid of extra fuild they gave IV Lasix while getting blood. And to top off that night they gave me a prep for endocopy and colonscopy too. They wanted to make sure I didn't have active bleed since I'm also on blood thinners.
I definatly left the hospital a few pounds lighter.
