What will that entail Fagan?


#354

I have it …was ferritin was 1800 my first test … Now down to under a hundred my consultant makes you keep going till bellow 50 , I hated needles now it’s only a scratch , but some of the girls are better than others …the hospital here in Belfast has 4 clinics a week and most of us Catholics lol …the other side don’t seem to have it in the same way

A venesection once a month.

Once a month a pint is maintenance down south ?? Up here it’s a blood test once a month and if you creep above yoyr baseline thrn in for a pint off … Are they dumping the blood in the south ? , they dispose as clinical waste here which is shocking


#357

blood test every 6 months down here is normal once you’re below 50 ferritin level. venesections start again if you go over 200 I think
