Re: IV iron infusion therapy
I have read about alot of side effects but just wanted to let you know my experience with IV iron infusions. I had 2 infusions a week from March till June of this year, for a total of 24 infusions. They felt like a gift from God. They made such a difference. I had no side effects and did wonderfully well with the infusions. My physician ordered them to run in slowly, over 3 hours, because he said people tended to have less side effects with the slower rate. I worked the entire time but did have to take off 2 afternoons a week to get them. I would use the time to read, or more often, take a nap. I felt better than I had in a couple of years! Even people at work started asking what was up because they could tell I felt so much better. Well, that's my iron IV story. I hope you do as well!
