Hey thanks for all the info. You said your infusion was 8 hours, you probably did feel better for a while. That sounds like a full infusion. My problem is that I had one recently but it was only 2 hours of the infed. I don't think that was enough to make a difference in my levels. My last hematologist, for some strange reason, does not want to do any kind of iron work up after my infusion, which was on April 9. That really concerns me. He did give me the CBC results a month later, and I was really concerned about it because several of the numbers dropped a couple of points. Also I went to the emergency room because of the symptoms I've been having recently (I feel like I am literally going to pass out from the fatigue), and it looks like my hemaglobin and RBC have decreased slightly, which really concerns me. Hemaglobin went from 12.5 to 12.2 and RBC went from 4.41 to 4.13. Thanfully the ER doctors sent out for a ferritin test and the other iron levels, so I will have something to work with. I am seeing a new doctor, a GP, so hopefully he may be able to FINALLY get this iron situation right. I'm trying to hold on until then, which is June 4, because that's when my insurance kicks in at my new job. So I'm trying to drag myself to work until then. It's comforting to know other people are going through the same problems. I hope others have better luck with doctors eventually.
