Lena ,
i went on vaccations with a bag full of medicine ( insulin , ferriprox, osteocare, Chewcal  & aldectone ) ... yeah , did chelation during vaccation days as well , but only with Ferriprox .... no desferal  at all, now my doc has prescripted me desferal only for TX day , yeah i m not prescripted fr having desferal after chelation day anymore ,  but i have to start chelation 2 hour bfore TX and continue that after 8-10 hours of TX .... but i will keep checking my Fe with this treatment plan  .... yeah , its easy to keep chelation ON with Ferriprox on vaccations and at any time, anywhere, and any occassion ( i always keep my all medicine with me, when i goes to attend weddings too )

Best Regards
Umair

Umair,

I am at a loss with your new desferal scheme. You say you have desferal only on transfusion day before and after transfusion? You only have ferriprox now? Why is that?

Lena ,
i think my doc wana try and see this treatment plan's effectiveness and that's why she advised me this , i m not sure about this treatment plan's result but i will follow it till my next Fe Report ... i will give blood samples to test my ferritin , very soon ... the main thing in it is , IV Desferal , i m on IV desferal bfore and  after TX and that's wat i think a plus point in this ... my doc advised me 3 desferal on Tx day (With IV or Pump) 2 hour bfore starting blood and 8-10 hours after Tx  wth 9 Ferriprox 500mg a Day (Daily)   ..  i dont see anything promising in it but i think she prescrpted this bcoze i asked her many times to start Asunra/Exjade and when-ever i asked her for that she asked me "why you want to move on Asunra/Exjade when this combination is working superb for you?' and i always replied that i m tired of using desferal and that's wat i wana move on Exjade ...........
so, i think that is the main reason why she cutted off desferal to weekly schedule and told me to use that only on Tx day, and 9 Ferriprox a day and 1092ng Fe  are the other reasons ..... well, i also dont see this plan effective bcoze i dont think that alone ferriprox could controle Fe or maintainn Fe on the level it is ... 

i m looking to keep using desferal 1 or 2 days between the 12 day's intereval of Tx  , but unfortunately i didn't find the same water for injection i used throughout the time i m on pump .. i used Global Pharma's  water for injection and then Scotman's and now both are not available anywhere in my city and also in neighboring city Lahore ... since those water for injection are not available i tried a local one brand and you people know that wat happened to me after that swollen thigh plus fever and all that ... so i m scared to try any other brand and looking to get my old and friendly water for injection of global pharma or scotman .....

let's see if the treatment plan i mentioned above work's for me or not ,  but my 1st prioirity is to maintain my Hb Bfore Ramadan  instead of Fe ... so , i m looking to get 2 Transfussions bfore 23 of August ... after that i  will back to Fe issue ...

i hope i explained the situation , ..  lots of probs , lots of issues, lots of worries  its difficult to decide wat to adress first, wat to solve 1st ,,, life is really so stressful  :-\ ...

Off: Ramadan. We got Dish tv. I came across a channel yesterday which said 9 days to go. Umair, do you fast a month? Does that work with diabetis? I read smth like that through the lines of getting your hgb fixed before 23th.

On: my apologies, i dont think it work. Although i used to take THE same dosage. It might stay stable though.

Umair,

why is there a blood shortage in Ramadan?Don't people give blood during Ramadan?
IV desferal is very effective. I wish things work for you.

Yes most people do hesitate donating blood in Ramadan because they are fasting, which itself takes much energy. Although, I think, If someone takes proper meal before starting fast should not have any problem donating blood. But then again, it varies from person to person depending on donors overall health.

Many blood banks here observe blood shortage in Ramadan.
