Iron Infusion

Dear Readers,

Firstly, I've updated my blog! You can now follow me on Twitter and on my Facebook page without going elsewhere!! It took me a while to learn how to place these plugins into my blog, but I finally got there!! 😁

Today I've finally had my iron infusion! I was literally limping along until today arrived! I was so low on iron, every bone in my body ached, I was in severe pain not being able to walk and my breathing well, it was ridiculous.

Despite being on the Macitentan again, the low iron wasn't helping me at all. PH'ers tend to get a low iron count and have to get infusions regularly to keep it from falling dramatically. I am lucky to get my infusions done at my local hospital now, instead of trekking all the way to the Brompton and it makes the experience much better for me.

So far, so good with the Macitentan still and fortunately the side effects are minimal this time. Time will tell once the iron kicks in along with the Macitentan, but hopefully I'm fighting fit again and starting to feel good within and about myself!

I will keep you updated!!

Thanks for reading!
