Wow!! 5 infusions in as many weeks, I am lucky to have about 2 a year. Just lately I have had a real run of low Haemoglobin and at the beginning of March had an infusion then 2 days later had a massive bleed and needed 2 units of red cells. Still haven't seen much improvement and see the Gastro tomorrow but you can bet your bottom dollar she doesn't suggest another infusion or transfusion.
My Anaemia seems to have been diagnosed as caused by Angiodysplasia for which there is no effective treatment.really. Changing meds to try to eliminate those that can cause internal bleeds seems to be the only course to try.
When you talk about edema do you mean Oedema (our english is different from yours obviously) which is swelling of the tissues.
