    Question How long do the iron transfusions last.

    I am new to this site, so hello to everyone. I am wondering about the iron transfusions. I just started receiving these my last one was about the beginning of July 2015, thanks to my new Dr. who refer me to a oncologist. I also feel blessed when I am receiving the iron next to many others who are receiving cancer drugs. But for about 5 weeks or so I have been great better than I have for years, but Now in the last few days I have been feeling really tired, body starting to feel worn out. Time to call the doc. Unfortunately right after I had the iron transfusions I did not get a blood test because the dr. I saw, was filling in my doc and did not tell me to get one. But I know myself that I should of so I could see where I was then and how I am now. This anemia can trick you into second guessing yourself, thinking maybe I just need to rest more, or I am too heavy or I am coming down with some flu bug, don't want to wait until I am so depleted I could end up in the hospital like I used to when I was getting blood instead of the iron. So really the question is how long usually does the iron last until you start feeling like I do?
