Infusion
Feb 5, 2009
Hi I am new here-first time writer & want to say thanks for all your helpful responses as I had my first iron infusion-in a very small dose-2 days ago- as I had severe reactions to other types of infusions.
Just sharing your thoughts has helped me with my aches, pains & severe head ache today! Yes I got the leg pains & a little heart trouble the first night but was fortifide with meds to help with that BUT I did not expect the flu like pains & misery today-but hearing it is common among you was a help. I did let the nurse know my dillemas.
Thanks for being there & I will be having another treatment each week in these small doses & will be prepared next week-I hope.
I will be in touch after that & compare my days.

May I ask what formula they used and what the small dose consisted of...how much and how often? And with the small dose, you didn't have reactions?

Also, do you recall what the formula and dose was when you did have the horrible side effects?

I'm about to have infusions, so researching what will work best. It seems the smaller dose (whatever that is) is more compatible to the body.

Any help you can give me on this is sincerely appreciated. It's all so traumatic and not knowing what to expect or possibly having a better idea of what I can do to help the process.

How do you feel now? I hope it's much better for you.

Thank you,
joisbelle
