... New to posting here but not to reading your messages. I found you about a week ago. Your messages helped me get through my first treatment with IV Venofer two days ago. All the information of first hand experiences have been a blessing. ... (1 replies)
... Hi, I am new to the board. I have had iron deficiency anemia for about four years now without any identifiable cause. It was initially blamed on heavy periods and fibroids but I had a myomectomy and the anemia persisted. I did oral iron for a year without improvement. I was then started on IV infed after a large GI and hematological work-up. The infed almost did me in... (7 replies)
... Just thought I'd post how my first Venofer infusion went as I know I spent a LOT of time searching forums for other people's Venofer experiences (and completely freaking myself out in the process). Hopefully this will help to put another anemia sufferer's mind at ease about getting iv iron. First let me say, I arrived at the infusion center this morning already wound up... (0 replies)

... HCT. My hemo was pleased with the increase in my numbers but did say they usually increase a bit more with the amount on Venofer I received. My guess is that in another 4 weeks my body will have gone through most of the iron stores and all my numbers will be showing anemia. ... (18 replies)
... I do not come from the weight loss surgery background, but I did recently have two infusions. I started out with a ferritin of 5 and iron sats of 3%. My first round of venofer took me to ferritin of 66 and iron sats of 22%. Other levels also improved. We did the second round with Feraheme and I do not know the results from that and will not be tested again until July. ... (3 replies)

... Thanks for your reply Barbara and I am glad that you did well with your venofer. I decided to go ahead and do the venofer. I had my first infusion yesterday. I don't know who was more nervous, me or the staff at the infusion center. I did okay but not great. I was pre-medicated up the ying-yang. They did run a test dose first which I guess is unusual with with venofer.... (7 replies)
... I am scheduled to start venofer on Wednesday. My insurance doesn't want to cover the venofer but they will cover infed. Can anyone tell me what I would be looking at costwise if I opted to go with the venofer anyway? ... (3 replies)

... Do you have any updates on your condition. I have had similar numbers to yours and I felt good for about two months after first set of 4 Venofer IVs.

... unding. It was not beating excessively fast, just really hard and I had trouble sleeping. I had these symptoms when I was pretty anemic last year, so maybe the Venofer isn't working and I'm getting more anemic by the day or maybe these are side effects of the Venofer. ... (18 replies)

... o away soon. I also feel pretty tired if I do anything that requires some energy. The RBC synthesis cycle is about 8 days, and it's been 7 days since the first Venofer infusion so in theory I should start to really feel better in the next couple of days. ... (18 replies)
