When I was diagnosed, my ferritin level of about 6000 ng/ml(highest I have ever heard of) and is now about 2600. I think I may have had 21 phlebs in the last 7 months. Also, I had a liver biopsy that proved I have fibrosis of the liver (stage 3) and the doctors also found an enlarged spleen. Does anyone experience minor pain from the liver or spleen after a phleb like I do? The doctor said it was the iron being pulled or released from the liver.
