Just wanted you all to know that with all of your good advice I was able to stand up to my doc and ask to see a gi specialist. I had the appointment yesterday.Even though I have my paperwork blood and biopsy results from March 10 the doc wants to do it all over due to my current issues. My hormone levels all came back normal and as expected my blood results were sent from the lab flagged this morning. My blood levels from yesterday were HGB 7 HCT 25 and MCV 67. Sadly I was happy to hear that it was this low....it justifies my weakness. The issue I am still having is bleeding. I started the Premarin Yesterday morning and exprienced very heavy bleeding yesterday and all night. I took a second pill tis morning. When will it stop? The dose is 1.25.When should I call my doc and ask her for another solution? The gi doc does have a sense of urgency which makes me feel like I have finally gotten to the right place. And if not for your help I could have never said that the care I was recieving was unacceptable. Thank you all for the encouragement.

Glad you were able to start addressing your problems. Anemia is just so exhausting!

(No suggestions on the premarin; sorry... did you ask when it should take effect?)

when I worked in labs it was not unusual to find a unexpected low hemoglobin. The Drs sometimes miss this. One time I noticed a thin looking blood sample and did the hemoglobin even tho it had not been ordered. I called the Dr and it turned out to be his mother-in-law, he was very grateful.

I searched for 'premarin bleeding' and got lots of websites. If you have not done so immediately call your DR as the sites advise. You can't afford to loose more blood.
