Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX am wondering why they did not offer this Neumega while she is in the hospital. She will be leaving the hospital tomorrow. My wife was treated for liver tumor.
My wife will be seen by her doctor for follow up. Is there a reason why the doctor would not want to give my wife this medicine that you named?
Another question please. I was at the hospital earlier today and the doctor said her red blood count was 6.2. It goes up and down, what do you recommend we ask the doctor to prescribe if the red blood count goes a bit lower. My wife has been through a lot, she can eat and talk good, they gave her Lasix to reduce the extra fluid in her legs.
Should they give her a blood transfusion and at what level should they. Hopefully the platelets eventually go up. Is my wife at risk of bleeding to death during this time of low red blood count?
