Nervous about blood transfusion!
I have Lupus sle, Crohns disease, and a severe case of anemia. My Rhuemy referred me to a Hemotologist for the anemia. My first appt was Friday April 17 and he scheduled me to have a blood transfusion on Friday May 1! I'm somewhat nervous and at first I refused and said absolutly NO!!! After speaking with the doctor and hearing the whole procedure explain, getting family and friends opinion, and a lot of prayer I decided that I would have the transfusion. I just want to know if anyone here has had one and if so what was it like, what should I expect, did it help you? My doctor said it would help a lot with my fatigue. I'm 26, diagnosed with Lupus at age 22, and Crohns at 24. Please, please comment!!!
