I just got back from the doctor and I knew my iron was log but I didn't think it was this low. I had gastric by pass 8 years ago and ever since then and iron pill does nothing to improve it. About 4 years ago I had iron transfusion I had 2 a week for about 8 weeks. I have a feeling it will be that way again. I go see the hematologist on Tuesday. My B12 was also a little low at 276 and Vitamin D was 17 which is considered insufficient. I want to know if anyone has an idea of how many treatements it will take? The dr gave me a once a week pill for D and I have shots of B12 once a week.
Thanks for any enlightenment.

I honestly don't know how many treatments it will take you to get back on top but it sounds like your off to a great start. I know they give infusions to people that are low for a faster treatment method I really don't see it taking to long for you as it's going right where it needs to rather then to the gut. Your D and B12 are super low and hopefully those treatments kick in for you soon and you start feeling great again. Sorry I couldn't have answers for you I have never had infusions :(.
