Ok, I finally got to see a hematologist today, hooray! He is advising me to switch to poly-sac iron. He says asked me to take it 2x day. So I'll check back with him in 2 months. He's also checking to see if i have any aborption problems (yah, the 1st MD who's actually taking me seriously and knows what to do, where was he 5 yrs ago?!) I asked him what a "good" ferritin number is, he says AT LEAST 150 (1/2 of the range)....wow, from single digit to 150, that'd be quite ambitious.....he says if we have problems w/ the iron, we may look into iron injections.

Gosh, 150 is a good ferritin number! I have raised my levels on 55 and I thought this is already great...
