Low blood count after Kidney Transplant
I had my kidney Transplant on May 22nd 2020 so am only 7 weeks after the procedure. I had some post transplant surgery bleeding complications so had to be opened two times to wash the blood. My Transplant stay in hospital was for 14 days. I had always being anemic ( Hb between 9 and 8) during my pre- transplant years. But since transplant my Hemoglobin had been dropping to 7. I have been transfused with 12 units of blood during my hospital stay. The Blood loss was explained as side effect of internal bleeding episodes. But now that I am home and recovering my Hemoglobin is dropping again. Recently it dropped to 7.3 so I had to go for one more unit of blood transfusion again. I am not sure if the immuno suppressants are causing this drop. I am on 6mg Tacro , 5 mg Prednisone and Azathioprine( held at the moment due to drop in Wbc)
Anyone experienced severe anemia after Transplant?
