Anyone had an iron transfusion?

I haven't had one but have done a few at work (nurse). It's fairly basic. Have obs taken every 5 mins or so at the beginning and then every hour. From what I have heard, people say they feel better within half an hour. If you feel dizzy, hot or sick let the nurse know.

Thanks so much. Do you know roughly how long it will take?

3-4 hours normally, sometimes longer

I had one but it was about 8 years ago. I imagined I would come out of it all rosy cheeked and full of beans, but didn't really feel any different! Mine took about 4 hours I think, but I know at the time they were doing a trail of a 30 minute transfusion but have no idea whether that is done now!
Good luck, I didn't have any side effects or issues!
