If you mean you hemoglobin ins 5.7 I'm shocked that you can even type your question.  When mine went to 7.6 they wanted to transfuse me.  Have you asked for procrit (epogen) to get your red blood counts up?  Don't wait for Monday, call your doc and ask about procrit and/or a couple of units of blood.  Hgb that low is dangerous and can do lasting damage.  Get on the phone while you can sitll dial.  Good luck.

that is low, procrit might help.  if you're getting a transfusion, get it from family member, someone you can trust.  just so you don't get any blood borne disease.

very best of luck to you
