Gastro Update

I saw my gastrointerological oncologist today.  It was my annual appointment to review my file and determine whether or not I have to have a colonoscopy.

The appointment went well.  He is not concerned about the anemia in the least.  He said that people who have had RNY are more likely than not to be iron deficient anemic.  It is not indicative of a bleed, just indicative of people who have an inability to absorb all the nutrients from their food.  Oh hey yeah, that’s me.  He said I should take the iron supplement and take it with meat and vitamin C to help it absorb.

He does want me to have a colonoscopy, so it’s on the schedule for November.  Yay.  Except not.

In other news, Baltimore is still Baltimore.
