Hello all! Well my doc called me today, and said that I needed an iron infusion because my hemaglobin is still at 9.6, and my ferritin is 3....normal is 15-150 so needless to say I am LOW. Has anyone had an iron infusion, and if so how long does it take, and how does it feel (not the iv....I get that part often). Any help would be glorious!
