I am also very happy to have found this topic!

I just found out from my Dr. that my iron levels are ridiculously low. Per the lab results:

Iron: 12 (41-182)
TIBC: 387 (300-450)
Iron % Saturation: 3 (20-55)

My CBC also came back with low counts for the following:

Hemoglobin: 9.2 (12.0-15.0)
Hematocrit: 32.5 (33.2-41.1)
MCV: 71.3 (79.3-94.8)
MCH: 20.2 (26.8-33.2)
MCHC: 28.3 (33.5-37.0)

So I have to have VEnofer Infusion 300mg daily x 3 days, starting on 5/20. I am a HUGE medical weenie, so I have already managed to freak myself out reading about the incidents of bad side effects and allergic reactions. (Sometimes I really hate the internet for that!!)

I have to say I'm a little frustrated today since I wasn't given a lot of information about what to expect, how to prep, any restrictions, etc. I don't even know how long it will take, or how much time I'll be away from work.

Good luck to you all - I hope we all find relief soon! (I've felt this way for so long that I'm not sure what to expect after getting my levels where they need to be...will I be like the Hulk? Will my new theme song be "Iron Man"?! ;) )
