[QUOTE=Pika;4241649]Mine one took 4 hours. Only 1 dose. It boosts my ferritin up to 150 but fall after 3 months. After 6 months, I was below the range again. But.... my heamoglobin stays in the middle of the range. My GI doc said, she'll give me a supa dupa dose again in this year.[/QUOTE]

Did you doctor ever find out why your ferritin keeps falling even after IV iron? I will be going to get my first IV iron transfusion on June 7th and am hopeful that it is the answer for me! I want to be able to forget I was ever anemic!! LOL! Right now on iron supplements my ferritin levels just will not rise and from what I'm learning our ferritin (iron stores) need to be above 50 to really be heading in the right direction away from anemia. I'm trying to find out all I can about getting my levels up and how to keep them there so I can say buh-bye to anemia once and for all!
