Wow Dharmesh! You made it! I am so happy for you.

Is this also due to low transfusion frequency after the splenectomy? How often are you transfusing since a month or two?

Once again, GREAT WORK!

Dharmesh,

Awesome man, that deserves serious salutations!

For me, I am still playing around 4900. No matter how hard I push with Exjade, it just revolves around basically 4500-5400. Andy, any help on this?

I'm thinking to now start Desferal too along with Asunra/Exjade. Dharmesh, what combination you did and how much? For me, taking kelfer/defriprone causes ache in my joints unfortunately so I can't do that as well.

Pratik,

I think combination chelation will be needed for a while. Adding desferal would help a lot. I asked some of the doctors in the US about the joint pains and they replied that they do not take patients off of deferiprone because of joint pain, but rather they treat the pain with an analgesic like ibuprofen.

We all are aware that Asunra is inadequate for severe iron overload. i read it somewhere in thalpal itself.
so alone asunra is waste of time.
i also had joint pain due to kelfer in past. inspite of it i am using kelfer 2 days a week (prescribed for 3 days a week)along with defrajet.
U can meet hemo in vadodara for this purpose

Dharmesh,

Hemo in Vadodara (Seema Bhatwadekar) just drives me nuts. I went back in 2009 when I had osteoporosis and she didn't even knew the medicine for sickle cell and lot of other basic info which even 10 year old thal could point out!

Though there are other great doctors. Was your dosage decided by some Hemo or Pediatric or you decided on your own? I am planning to start on desferal pretty soon and I may need some guidance. Might give you a call as well if needed!

Best,

p.

Dear P,

I hv never met Dr SB but i have referred a patient to her...
And that patient is quiet happy with the treatment and she added desferal with dfx and getting good results.
So when we remain in touch with any doc continuously... they try to give us better treatment plan according to our need..

and i wonder why u wanted to know a medi of sickel cell from her?

Currently my dosage are decided and prescribed by Dr Vijay Ramanan Sir. and i stay in touch with Andy, JS for the purpose. And last but not least.. i am boss of my own...so final decision is taken by me based on advise.

U can call me whenever u think fit!!
