Hi zelan,

The Thalassemia doctor you're seeing, should already advise you on that, some after certain section of Blood Transfusion, Ask the nurse or dcotor where you have your Blood Transfusion on where to purchase the Desferal Infusion Pump, and how to use and prepared it. Check out my other blog post on step for preparing for desferal infusion and also Documents section on where to purchase it:D
