Iron IV Infusions

  • By trebleinthekchn

    I have severe iron deficiency anemia. I am always so fatigued. I’d say on most days my energy level is completely spent by noon. It’s not easy, especially since I used to have an active lifestyle before I was diagnosed. In two weeks, I am set to have my first iron IV infusion. I’ve never had any kind of infusion before. I’m not sure what to expect. The first session is almost 6-hours. What are they like?

Hopefully others can chime in on what to expect if they’ve had this kind of infusion, but in the meantime, I just wanted to wish you the best of luck with this upcoming session! 6 hours….wow! Please keep us posted on everything, and let us know how things go! We’re thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way! -Casey, RheumatoidArthritis.net Team
