I spent another couple of hours at A & E late last night. From about 3pm to 10pm yesterday I somehow lost about 580ml blood into my stoma bag. The blood test at the hospital showed my haemoglobin had dropped from 112 to 95 so the doctors and specialist surgeon on duty did not consider I needed a transfusion. They sent me home at 12.30am but told me to return if bleeding persisted. By this morning there was very little new blood so just another unusual episode on the twisted journey through the valley.
What pleased me was that I could lose that much blood and not need a transfusion, and the fact that the blood was clotting well. Both positive signs
