We couldn't afford the Injectafer either and went with the LMW iron, which worked wonders. It was about $415 out of pocket for the infusion and the nursing care to give it. We got another type 1.5 years prior to this, and it did nothing. I think Injectafer and LMW are the only twp to try. I had to fight to get the LMW iron as the pharmacist was not familiar with it and was concerned about anaphylaxis and wanted to give it over 8 hours. Got the protocol that Stanford and Johns Hopkins uses and that took care of that problem. Good luck, I hope you feel better.
