I had RNY in 2005. I've have suffered through occasional bouts of anemia and low iron and B-12. I'm currently battling the iron deficiency. My hmg is 10 and ferritin is 7. Several years ago my ferritin dropped to 3 and I had the IV infusions. I'm happy to say I had no side effects from it. I had one weekly for 8 weeks. I recently saw my hematologist and she put me on liquid iron prescription (Ferrous Sulfate 220 mg a tsp q d with Vitamin C). She also told me to eat red meat. There are lots of things with iron but she said the body absorbed the iron from the red meat best. If it doesn't in improve in two months I have to have six weeks of IV infusions again. It seems it's going to be an on-going battle due to the malabsorption. However, once I get it up this time it will be my life ambition to keep it up!
