I had my first iron infusion last week. My hemoglobin was 8.6. Today is was down to 8.5 when I went in for my next infusion. This time along iwith the B12 and the iron, I got an iv of Decadron. I'm not exactly sure what this was for. I looked online and there are lots of uses. What purpose does this serve for an iron infusion. I did not have a reaction during the first infusion, so I'm just not sure.
