    Fear of Iron infusion

    Hello, My wife is going for her very first Iron infusion tomorrow. She is terrified, convinced that her low iron means that she is dying of cancer. I've read a good many posts on this board on the subject and learned a lot from you nice folks.. I guess I'm searching for some ways to help her cope with it and maybe even convince her that low hemoglobin is not necessarily a death sentence.
    Thank you all.

    I hope the infusion went seamlessly. I have had several over the last few years and have not yet had an issue. After a few days I have renewed energy and feel great! I have anemia caused by my inability to absorb iron and as best I am aware there is no relation to cancer.

    I have several friends who have to do this. Anemia does not equate to cancer. All my friends love to get theirs because of the energy boost they get!
