The lovely man came back to see me when I was ready to be released back into the community!
He told me that was I rather anaemic and that in the old days they would have given me a transfusion but as it wasn't too bad he had a prescription that would get my iron levels back up quite quickly...
I imagined more iron tablets, taken in pregnancy and not since. They had some most unexpected side effects so I was not keen.
"Oh no " he said with a twinkle....."You'll have no problem with this prescription.....Two things......Dark chocolate and red wine!"
Oddly I had no problem with that! And as far as I know have not been anaemic since. So I pass that one to you.....it works for me!
