[QUOTE=mbbasketball;2852895]You do not need to fast for the IV iron treatment. Take a good book to ready, you will be there the first time approx 4 hrs. They will give you a small amount of iron to see if you are allergic that takes about 45min, then they will give your the remainder which could take about 3hrs. After the first treatment with no allergic reaction, the following treatments will not require the 45min prep. Those other ones usually takes about 3hrs. You can take a snack if you feel like you need to eat. At my hematologist, they usually have drinks provided. I know for my first treatment, I actually fell asleep, because of the benadryl.[/QUOTE]
A venofer iron infusion only last about 30 minutes after the IV is started. The hardest part is getting stuck for the IV!
