No Iron in Bone Marrow?
The report also states that the peripheral blood smear says there is mild to moderate irregularity in the shape of my RBC's and that several 5-nuclear-lobed neutrophils were identified. My platelets also vary in size more than normal.
My hemoglobin is still holding at 10.1. Last month it was 10.4.
The hematologist wants me to start taking iron, and keep taking B12, and retest in 2 months. I am not sure I understand how this will help. I have enough iron stores, it seems to not be getting into my bone marrow.
Any ideas? Honestly, I think he is guessing on what might work.
