I'm from the UC forum but thought I'd post this here too!!
I just finished a round of 8 Venofer iron injections for my low ferritin levels. The first 7 were ok but the last one went very wrong.....I now have intense pain surrounding the injection site (upper glute) and a soreness radiating my entire hip, lower back, upper leg area. It has been 2 and a half weeks since the injection. It hurts to sit, walk, etc.
My Dr says there is no sign of infection or allergic reaction since it's not red or swollen. I would say there is a tiny bit of swelling and definitely a faint bluish color.
Question- has anyone else had a similar reaction from iron injections? Will this resolve itself? Any help would be much appreciated!!!
