Reply to "Iron Deficiency Anemia"

My iron is also low enough to need IV iron. My colon was removed and j-pouch created in December 2016. In March 2017 I had my takedown surgery which was followed by a massive c-diff infection. Had major surgery in August 2017 to fix a bowel obstruction caused by an internal hernia where the intestines fell back and started to attach to my ovaries. In November 2017 I had my second takedown surgery and I'm not sure the inflammation has gone away. In December my total iron was 25. About a month ago it was 13 despite taking oral iron.
