• Anemia

    Asked by EAGLESOAR on Thursday, May 23, 2013


    Has anyone used the injection Aranesp to treat low hemoglobin? Has it improved your feeling of fatigue? After reading the info provided I'm afraid to have my husband use this treatment for low red blood cells. He has never had a transfusion and is afraid of that.

      I had an injection of Aransep after my one and only Blood transfusion the day before Thanksgiving. I felt so much better after that. My red blood count has been normal or close to it ever since.

      I know that getting a transfusion can be scarey, but the hospital does a great job of matching and typing the blood, and monitor the transfusion for side effects.

      Best of luck to your DH - and remember to take care of yourself.
