Hi everyone - first I want to say how helpful it has been reading everyones posts and responses.. What a great group of people!!
I had my CBC yesterday, including iron, and ferritin testing.
My PA called tonight at 7pm (office closes at 5) to tell me my iron saturation came back at 12 and my ferritin was 3, my hemoglobin is 10.9.
She said I need to get set up on a 5 week treatment, 1 x week for Iron IV.
Any one have this and could tell me more? I was also told it takes hours! My boss isn't going to like that part.. How long does it last in my body, and once we attain high levels is it possible for me to try and keep it up with red meat and greens?
Thank you anyone and everyone !!!
PS - I AM ON 150 MG TASIGNA EVERY 12 HOURS
