Hi! I just wanted to let you know that my ferritin level was 4 and my iron stores were 10%. I was on oral iron for 2 months but my body did not absorb the iron and eventually had 4 iron infusions completed last April. It took about a month to start getting my energy back but all summer I felt very good. I'm now starting to feel sick again but my doctor told me I would eventually need more infusions. Did you look at your TIBC level also? The higher that number is the more anemic you are also... mine was 650 or something like that pre-iron infusions and dropped down in the 400 range after the infusions. Good luck! I know how life-altering anemia can be.
