Can anyone tell me from personal experience how being anemic affects them on a daily basis? My iron levels are 26 at the moment and I am feeling quite drained. I am on tablets so I do not need a solution. Any knowlege on the subject would be much appreciated?

I became anemic and had to have emergency surgery and two units of blood. I didn't know I was anemic, but I kept having spells where I would almost pass out and could barely keep going. A doctor discovered that my hemoglobin was 7. I'm fine now, hope you will soon be also.

I became anemic before a major operation I had. I became very weak, sleepy, and disoriented. After the surgery, I was given 6 bags of blood, potassium and iron and I feel a whole lot better now. My doctor keeps a regular check on my levels to make sure they are where they need to be.
