15 months ago i had a kidney/pancreas transplant. my hemoglobin has been around 10, hemocrit 31, and iron saturation 7%. i'm exhausted with weakness, shortness of breath and pain in my extremity joints(hands, ankles, feet) my dr has me on oral iron 3 times a day (i tak it as far away from food and my meds as possible), but with no results. i've had 2 iron infusions with infiltrations, skin pigmentation changes, and joint pain and the one only had effect for 4 months. i'm a 32 yrs old, female with normal periods. i also struggle with painful skin rashes and mouth sores. i'm not sure what else to do to build my iron store. dr says procrit won't help b/e i haven't got the iron to support it. my transplanted organs are stable and working well. do i need to see a hematologist? i've also had a endoscopy and colonscopy, both were clean. any thoughts?
