Re: how long after iv iron infusion will i feel better
It will take you several weeks to start feeling better and then it depends on how low you were to begin with and how much iron they gave you. If you still get your period, you may lose some iron. Usually a recheck for your ferritin is done 6-8 weeks after the infusion. I have had to have three infusion this last time because my ferritin droped to 8. This time they were using Venofer, kinder on the system, but you have to go more times, thus the reason for three infusions. I will get checked in 6 weeks to see what my levels are. It usually takes me about three or four weeks to begin to feel somewhat better, but when I get my labs, my levels don't seem to be above 60. Still a lot better than being at 8.
