What a shame your husband couldn't take aranesp. Procrit seems to be working for Don but doctor had to up dosage from 40,000 units that he stated giving him to 60,000. Procrit really just held Don's hgb. For the first time his hgb went up significantly these past two weeks but still way below normal. He always tells people he is fair but I would say he is doing pretty good overall. Hope your husband starts doing better.
