I was at the ER twice last week..was given Toradol thru the IV..as soon as the nurse gave it to me my hand went white..all the color drained out and hand started twitching..she pulled the IV out..I have the hugest bruise..it's purple and takes up a large portion of my arm..it scared the nurse, my husband and me.. pale

Wow! confused

My guess would be that the IV managed to get into the area around the vein, rather than the vein, or the tordol damaged the vein. I'm glad that other than a wicked bruise you seem to be ok.

Take care, and I hope the head's doing better this week. (((hugs)))

Oh goodness gracious!
But what about your kidneys??? what was that from??

Sweetie, it's a good thing they found out about anemia. I know about anemia a bit since I forever have it bom

When you are anemic, you have less oxygen in your blood, hence in your brain 2, and so on,
and you get more M - so, you have be diligent with your Iron and possibly Vit B12 intake and monitor it closely, sweetheart
for the rest of your life.

make sure you eat good quality red meat at least three times a week, or, if you are a vegetarian, best if you get an advice from
a nutritionist how to compose your meal to ensure you eat enough Iron, since non- hemed Iron from plant is more difficult to absorb
thru our digestive system than hemed Iron from meat.
( in other words, you'll absorb more Iron from a smaller piece of bloody steak than from a bigger bowl of beans)

Please, take a good care of yourself, sweetie!

Thanks Risa. They believe it was from a new medication I had started..they are conflicted over this..don't know if I'll ever really know. I'm still supposed to see a urologist.

I'm slightly anemic..whatever that means..they never told me what my iron level was..grr. My PCP said I could take iron pills. I'm sorry that you are anemic Risa..love you I love you
