Pumping Iron again

I had my six month check with the oncologist last week.  Everything is fine except my iron.  I am back to iron infusions.  I had my first drip yesterday.  It took four hours for them to pump it in.  I react if it goes in too fast.  They load me with benedryl but it wasn't enough to stop a reaction.  So for me it has to go in slow or I react.  One down two to go.  Then I plan on getting  to the bottom of my iron absorption issue.

I bet all that Benedryl and the infusion makes you so sleepy! Are Iron supplements a long term option?

Hoping that ultimately, those iron infusions will give you more energy!

Sorry about this, Babe! I know it must be a huge pain in the patootie. Well, not literally THERE.
