Okay.. not being one totally trusting of the Medical INDUSTRY.. :)..... I have had trouble several months with anemia. Iron is very low and absorbtion is not happening.. They've done all the basic tests... gut and colon are fine . SO... while we search for more answers....

I am scheduled Thursday for Iron Therapy.... 56 CC's diluted in an IV bag over a 4 hour period or so. (If I pass the 'test' amount and show no reaction)

NOW.. my question is this... WHAT IF.. let's just say.... my iron couldnt' be replenished in this way? THEN what would we do? The only way it's risen in the past three months is from shots (even tho I have been taking perscription Iron pills). (Normal count is 13 +, and I have only gone from 6.5 to 7.9)

The Doc says, likely.. once this is replenished I should be good as new in a few weeks/months. (That WOULD be nice, since most of the last year or two I've felt like the pics of Auswich survivors LOOK!)

ANYWAY.. any of you got experience with this? Thanks.
