I've had five infusions so far...once a week - no problem receiving them - they give me steroids first. However, for the next few days I feel like I am walking thru mud and my legs and hips ache - nothing a little aleve won't relieve. I am receiving ferrecit. My hemocrit levels were down to 24.9% - unfortunately, even with treatment, my iron is still maintaining and at times going down - it seems like I am not absorbing it. I still have 3 months to go and I heard that some people receive them weekly for a whole year. Part of the reason is that I have not stopped my heavy periods as of yet, and as soon as I can find a birth control pill that doesn't make me sick and full of abdominal pain, I will start. Until then, I guess I will need more blood transfusions.
