I had my first iron infusion yesterday. I was a bit apprehensive at first, as my family doctor had originally planned on giving me an intravenous injection instead of iron infusions, but she had changed her mind by the time I went to see her yesterday. I received 10 ml (200 mg iron) of venofer slowly over 2.5 hours, and I did really well with it! I only had a metallic taste during the infusion, but that stopped once the infusion was over.
Today I feel a bit off, but I guess my body has lots of work to do storing all that iron.
