After just receiving blood transfusion therapy for my MF for a year my Haemo thought it was time for some iron chelation. Exjade was the preferred route. I thought, "well I've waited a year for some sort of drug therapy, let's go for it!" Eleven days in and I explode in an itchy rash, fever and am breathless beyond normal MF symptoms. GP and Haemo agree it IS an allergic reaction. Has this happened to anyone else? On a cheerful note, have been up to Guy's to see Claire Harrison. She is SO good. However, she wants to see the original bmb before moving on. The plot thickens!!
