My Doctor says I'm going to need "Iron infusions". Does anyone have experience with this? isn't this basically a blood transfusion?

      I have had iron transfusions. They aren't bad. Just make sure you Eat a good meal before or you'll be super sick.

      Did the doctor say what’s causing your extremely poor oral absorption?

      Yes. I have infusions. I have a problem with my liver, so all oral needs/ vitamins do not get absorbed very well.

      I’ve had blood transfusion but never iron transfusion. Did you try taking 325mg iron pills before?
