Since I have been off sick I can always tell when I need a transfusion.
Tomorrow I get my blood work done and it will probably show low heamoglobin. Then a couple of days later I will need a top up.
As well they will be checking for iron. As the transfusions add up so does the iron. Too much can be toxic.
I met someone last night who had an autocylus transplant. That is when they take a few of your own blood cells in a biopsy. Then they fix them up. They give you the chemo , kill the cells in the body then introduce the repaired ones.
He was in the hospital 4 weeks then had to live near the hospital within 3 minutes.
He said I’ll be fine as long as I don’t catch a cold or I’ll die.
Good advice I guess!
My mouth seems to be a big problem. I suffer from recurring cold sores usually just one at a time that last for a little over a week. Well I just got rid of one now I have a sore on the right side of my mouth that hurts when I eat on that side or brush my teeth. On top of that my gums bleed when I brush my teeth.
So I made an appointment with the dentist to check my teeth and gums. I got to get the go ahead from my doctor first though to make sure the dentist doesn’t give me anything that may worsen my blood results. With the low immunity I have it would be tough to fight a cold right now.
