HI Elaine!
Your numbers resemble mine, although I do not have the arthritis, I just do not absorb oral iron or b12. They are giving me iron infusions. I just had my first one on Friday, it was a piece of cake, I went into a little room at the outpatient services, they started an IV, gave me a small test dose to make sure there was not a reaction, then gave me the rest, tok out the iv, and I was done. it took me about 6 hours with the type of infusion I had, next time will be shorter, as they will not have to do the test dose. When I had my blood transfusion, I was given the blood through the IV as well, but I was bleeding internally at the time, so I cannot tell you for sure what your protocol will be.
I hope you get to feeling better soon, there is a lot of support here! :wave:
