    Does anyone know how long it takes to feel the benefit of a red cell transfusion? My CBC shows a good bump in my hematocrit, but I have yet to feel better.

    I usually feet better during or right after a transfusion. It depends on how low my hemoglobin was when I got the transfusion. If it is really, really low, like in the 6-7 range the effects are immediate.
