I am 72 year old female and for some reason my body has stopped storing Ferritin. I just finished with my second round Infusions. I had my first ones about
16 months ago. The first ones did not make me ill. I get 2 bags one week apart. This time, My stomach started feeling really bad a week before the infusion and it has continued now for 6 weeks of Nausea and gastritis. They told me Medicare will not pay for it until it gets so low and I think I may start paying out of pocket and get just one bag at a time to see if I can stop this. I have not seen my Hematologist since the infusion but an scheduled to go in April. I have been so ill , I have cried with this. I must have the Iron to live, but this has been miserable.
I am in Scottsdale Az.
