    Anyone have BAV Disease, aneurysm and severe anemia (hgb 5.5)?

    I had blood work done for a physical at work. I had a hgb of 5.5 and himi of 21%. I was not able to return to work until my hgb is much higher. I have been anemic all my life. At 5.5 hgb. I don't know what it's like having energy, I learned to push the exhaustion away, as a result I keep going until my work is done.

    I told my hematologist tired is my normal, he didn't think so. After a battery of tests they found an aneurysm, a big one 5.0cm, more tests and heart disease, bicuspid aortic valve disease (BAV). Just great, I needed that, now I have to double my overtime to pay for the medical bills. There is no energy to find, there never was, but I will continue to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. Anyone else have this special combination of bad luck?
