After waiting and worrying because of an iron shortage, and being told I might have to pay privately, the hematologist has come through for me. It's going to be covered by medical. I get my first infusion next Tuesday and then two more after that before a recheck. My last posted ferritin was 9 and now it's down to 7.
I'm excited because my endo wouldn't do anything about my thyroid until he sees if the iron makes me feel better. So by July I'll finally know!
Thanks for everyone's encouragement and advice!!
