My hemoglobin level is now steady at 12.8. I take the iron supplements 18mg 3-4 times a week.
There is no nausea however I occasionally get an immediate need to have a bowel movement after eating. This is usually accompanied with gas, sometimes painful. That happens less when I take the vegetable enzymes.
Pain on my right side behind the lowest rib is about a 3 and is not regular. If I press on the ribs the pain is increased.
Tried to schedule with one of the top doctors in US News but many are not taking new clients or very specific illnesses. I have not had the tests done yet. Could you recommend a doctor in the Washington, DC area?
In any case, thank you for the followup.
