Hi Steph:

Yes I still have cycles and I don't think that they are that heavy, compared to some other people I know. I am not running to change every hour.
I could have spelled it wrong, but its Venofur or something like that. It does look like prune juice. The infusion is done in the hem/onc office and takes about 45 minutes to run. They monitor my blood pressure and I usually just take a little nap. I do feel kind of yucky the next two days, tired and achy.
They run a CBC before each infusion. Now that I finished that round, in two weeks the physician wants a complete iron workup, with ferritin, CBC and TIBC. I am curious to see if the ferritin went up, but I know it can take a long time. Take care.
