My Mom, an 79 yr. old recently fell and in her left leg and hip was a rod only put in. In the process of that they found a 90% closed right carotid artery in neck. Right before the fall she had gall bladder removed. She is progressing, very slowly. Question, she was found anemic and have been giving her iron tablets twice daily. That is not working. She is in a good rehab. One friend of hers had surgery while back, with anemia and they gave her blood w/iron. Is this a viable solution?
