For those who have had iron infusions... I am confused and a bit worried. I just had a series of 5 iron infusions, one per week, for 5 weeks. I'm going to call tomorrow to see what my ferritin was prior to the infusions. But, I just got results today that my Hgb is 11.4 and my ferritin is 463! I just completed my final iron infusion a week prior to the lab work.

Has anyone else had this happen or know what it means? Does it just mean that my system hasn't had time to process the iron? Does it mean sometime more?


PS I'm still having low-grade temps (waking at 100.1 average), some bleeding, fatigue and night sweats. (Though the sweating seems better than it was on higher rectal steroid doses.)
