Iron Infusion?
Feb 26, 2008
I have been trying to take iron pills for the last three weeks and have not been having alot of luck. I'm supposed to take 325mg twice a day, but they have been causing me stomach pain. Then I got sick for a week with a fever (102) and wasn't eating much, so I didin't take any at all. I spoke with my hemotologist and told him about the stomach pain and illness, with regards to taking the iron. I'm going back next week and he said, that a lot of people have a hard time taking iron and he will probably just do the iron infusion. Does anyone know anything about that? How often do you have to do it, how long does it take, how does it make you feel? Please give me any feedback you might have about this. Thank you!!
