Yes, I agree IV infusions are great when we HAVE to have them. People need to be aware of BOTH sides risk and benefits. It is an extremely dangerous therapy. When I went to a doctor for iron information he got out the manual and there is a BIG RED warning on the front chapter with an X within a circle telling doctors beware. I'm not kidding, that really scared me. I believe that this is why my Hematologist decided to see if there was any chance of me absorbing supplements.
Also, because you have a successful experience once or twice even doesn't mean that you won't have a reaction the next time. I've wanted to be infused desperately, BUT I too am sensitive to many thing and was very ill. I know that I would be the one to have a bad experience and can't take this chance.
Thank you so much for telling others here what CAN happen. FLFLOWERGIRL
