blood transufsion needed after i miscarried n hemorhaged
Jul 28, 2013
Last week i suffered a miscarrage that caused me to hemmorhage badly.. It took a good day n a half until my blood counts started to really show how much blood id lost. I was almost about to b sent home after one last blood test that came back at 70 (130 was normak for a woman my age. So i was told) Im stilk feeling very weak, constant headache, heart pounding really hard, ecspecially with any physical activity.. Less then a day after i got the 2bags if blood i was sent home at 84.. Is this normal? Im nervous n still bleeding a bit. Im bleeding alot more now that Im home n my husband had to go back to work tday so Im alone with my two youngest n afraid if i make a wrong movement like what happened on my way to the er, that i could easily start bleeding heavily again. (I took a cab to the er cuz i knew i was getting really weak but when i got into the back of the cab i strained my stomach muscles n something felt like it pop'd or ripped n i got real bad pain n everything went black n i almost passed out, and blood came pouring out) Since then ive been weak. The 1st bag of blood i got didnt do anything for me. The second bag helped a bit but i was still very weak and Im still feeling weak with a constant headache n heart beating really hard.. Does this sound right?? Im so scarred. I know i cant afford to start bleeding heavily but still bleeding a bit..

Hello and sorry to hear about your medical issues.
Given that you needed transfusions, if you're still bleeding, and especially since you're still feeling poorly, I'd contact your doctor.
