forgot to tell you two things. First I did get my iron infusions and they made a heap of difference. Within about 2 and a half weeks my feet and legs felt back to normal. Also I didn't have any tingling in my hands. I was able to not want to just lay around when I came home from work. I started doing Just dance with the kids at least 4 days a week.
I guess I probably didn't tell you either when I was getting my iron transfusions there were 4 other woman who had gastric bypass getting their iron treatments.
I go in a few weeks to talk to my ob/gyn about what I can do to stop my heavy periods which is causing my low iron. Not many choices, the pill I can't do since I get migraines and she said I have a higher risk of having a stroke. Pass
Could get a shot but they have high instance of bleeding during the first 6 months more than normal which is what I am trying to avoid. Pass.
IUD - no thanks one piece of plastic inside my body is just about enough. Pass
Hysterectomy - oh geez- pass
Ablation- guess that is my only choice that I feel comfortable with.
i just don't want to have to get iron every 5 months it is time consuming, not very comfortable, and I have to take off work.
Like I said I go back to talk to the actual doctor in a few weeks. I talked to the nurse practitioner when I went a few weeks ago.
In hunger news, I am hungry. Daily. I have been trying to eat breakfast to calm down the hunger but I have been snacking and lord help me at night. I ate 4, ok maybe it was 5 slices of pizza tonight. It was thin crust but I ate them.
I need a fill again. But it feels so good to drink with no noise.
The scale got down to 173 again, hovered at 174 for a while then back to 175. Tomorrow I will probably be 176 I ate like crazy tonight.
Worst of all I bought mini donuts because they were on sale. I ate so many I don't even want to tell you. Remember I was the donut diva, me and donuts go way back.
