Normocytic and Normochromic RBC's

by Asad
(Islamabad, Pakistan)

I have had a Hair transplant surgery through FUT procedure around 2 weeks ago. While i am happy with the results I am feeling really weak with low energy levels, experiencing mood swings and having tingling sensation in my arms and legs since last 10 days. The feeling increases when I move around a bit.

Yesterday I got my blood tests done and findings in the report read something like normocytic normochromic RBC with adequate platelets. I want to enquire if a hair transplant procedure can cause anemia or Vit B12 or Folate deficinecy? And does normocytic normochromatic RBC mean deficiency of the above mentioned vitamins?

Thank you

'Normocytic' and 'normochromic' means that everything is normal. I'm not sure why you think that your blood tests show B12 or folate deficiency.

And no, a minor surgery would not cause such deficiencies if you do happen to have them.


A full blood count(FBC) lab results reads red and white blood cells---- Normocytic and normochronic
please what is the meaning and what could be the patient' problem and management of his condition?
NB: all other values are within normal range except the above

Means normal

Normocytic and normochromic means 'normal'. There is no 'patient problem' when it says normocytic and normochromic.
