I dunno Leah, they took some blood and I had to wait a little while, then the doc came in and did the exam and explained what was going on. He didn't even want to do an ultrasound or anything (yeah, I didn't get one, because he was so convinced I'm fine). I do have a follow-up appointment though to make sure the iron is working.
Sorry to hear you had trouble with the pills... I bet you feel better after the infusions though. Does it give you more energy?
