My Iron IV Treatments

Since I’m chronically anemic, I need an Iron IV booster every so often. Especially when I had blood loss due to my Portal Vein Thrombosis and bleeding from my esophagus and stomach last Autumn. With being on a blood thinner and anxiety medication, I can’t take regular supplemental iron. It just hurts my stomach. A month ago, my hematologist’s APRN ordered an Iron IV Treatment which will be four rounds. Now, once a week I have to visit my hematologist’s office and get an Iron IV. Thank goodness, we have that on schedule. I hope I will feel much better in about 6 – 8 weeks after the first treatment, today.
