Wow, two posts in two days...thanks for being here, everyone! Anyway, my husband will be having a blood transfusion in the morning. He has been off of chemo (reminder, he has lung mets and was on a study) since the second week of September. Taken off the study because of blood counts. Two different doctors (our new oncologist and our internist) mentioned his counts were such "no one would fault us for doing a blood transfusion." However, neither said to do it. He really has been declining lately and the internist - just today - said alot of it could be due to being severely anemic. Well, I started to make some calls and he has the procedure in the morning. Figure it can't hurt!
Now that I have vented, have any of you had this procedure and did you feel better after it? I sure am hoping that this will give him some energy again...
This is also another example of you have to be your own advocate!
