i just got a phone-call from my mum - i feel so bad for both of them!
I'm gonna do the chores and stuff and walk dogs for her (she's a dog-walker and he's unemployed)

is there anything more i can do? Has anyone had a blood transfusion?

Can I have some advice :o

I'm very to sorry hear this, hayley. Can you say why he needs a transfusion? If it is too personal, then okay. I hope he is okay and back to good health soon. :hug:

I can't offer advice though, sorry. Just carry on doing what you are though.

I hope he's okay. :( Maybe I'm mistaken but didn't you say that you need blood transfusions in another thread as well?

So, what will happen if you don't get one? When I had my spleen and gallbladder removed this past November, they made me sign all these papers in case I needed a transfusion. Luckily, I didn't need one.

it's okay i'm well aware :p I also injure myself accidently about once a week! I'm some sort of danger/sadness magnet hehe

I've just spoken to Alan - he seems ok, just a bit drugged. They're gonna put more blood in him now and then stick a tube down his throat so see what is causing the internal bleed.

So my mum doesnt loose money I'm gonna stay off school on monday if needs be to help my mum walk the client's dogs.

@Shannon - seriously things always go bad round me :p

aww thats gd :hug: umm i dunno but im not getting one :p

Whats wrong with you then? if the doctors advised you to take a blood transfusion it must be pretty serious, and to turn it down is pretty silly.

it's silly but id actually rather stick with this then suffer in hospital again.And it's because I'm severely anaemic.

From my understanding it's very dangerous to need a red bloodcell transfusion and not have one, Do you know what you're Hemoglobin level is?

Don't mean to appear rude, I am just interested.

i've got no idea - i try not to think about it:o
yeah i understand it's very dangerous but iv had so many near-death experiences i've realised i'd rather enjoy my life and not lie ill in a hospital bed

And also by those very means halving your life expectancy rather than living a full life?

i wouldnt regret it. I'd rather die young than live til im old and need help to go pee. It sounds harsh but my grandmother is sooo like me and i never want to be so weak and helpless. It scares me how fragile she is.

Do you remember the outcome of your Iron status test? Did you have the Serum ferritin test? Should have told you how much iron your blood is storing. whilst I agree about not wanting to end up old and dependent on other people I think these things are best treated whilst they can still be done simply, denying yourself something like this is another form of suicide, and something that could be months not years.

Having had people in my family die from cancer has shown me that I will take life over death, and it kills me to see people throwing life away.

My Nana used to have blood transfusions for years, i dunno what it was like though, i didnt find out until she died that she had them, or that anything was wrong:confused:

But he'll be ok, just as long as you keep helping your mam anyway you can:)

iron defiency - its because I throw up of i take iron tablets/ water so I cant get iron into my system

i'm vegetarian so i dont eat meat and the iron-rich veggies and nuts and stuff i eat aren't enoughx

Are you taking extra vitamin C to help absorb as much Iron as possible from the food you do eat?
