Had the first of two rounds of iv iron I fusion I've had these regularly for years now. And i always hate the recovery time from this. I feel horrible even worse then I did before. My pain increases for several days and times like this I just feel so needy. Nothing makes it any easier. Except maybe the chips I eat. Because I crave crunchy stuff during this time frame.i don't Normal eat like that however during this I just allow myself what I feel helps . Three days has been my number of days it takes for me to bounce back.
