I'm becoming more upset about this iron issue. Just got a call from my doc. No change in my iron levels at all. I've been getting injections for weeks and NOTHING. She wants me to keep doing the weekly injections and re-test in 3 mo and go from there. 3 months from now I'll be in Vancouver and have to go through this all over again with a new doc.
WHY is my body not keeping iron? Even if I ate NOTHING AT ALL, the injections should be making SOME help
Does this mean that I won't be able to maintain my iron for the rest of my life? Will I need another transfusion? I'm scared of this now.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
