My blood tests over the past 3 years have shown low-to-borderline RBC (4 - 4.2), normal MCV (93-96), and borderline-to-high MCH (32-33). Is there a kind of anemia that could cause this?

My latest blood tests however show this:

July 9th 2012: (pre-surgery)
RBC - 4.20 (normal: 4.2-5.2) NORMAL
MCH - 33 (normal: 27-31) HIGH
MCV - 93.8 (normal: 82 - 100) NORMAL
Ferritin - 10.9 (normal: 11.0-306.0) LOW
Iron Level - 46.5 (normal: 11-29) HIGH
UIBC - 33 (normal 26-52) NORMAL
Iron Binding Capacity - 79.5 (normal 43.8-67.0) HIGH
Iron Saturation - 0.58 (normal 0.21-0.42) HIGH

August 15 2012: (3 weeks post-surgery)
RBC - 4.02 (normal: 4.2 - 5.4) LOW
MCH - 32.6 (normal: 27 - 31) HIGH
MCV - 95 (normal 81 - 99) NORMAL
Ferretin - 8 (normal: 20 - 360) LOW
Iron - 10 (normal 9 - 31) NORMAL
Transferrin - 3.72 (normal: 2.13 -3.6) HIGH
Transferrin saturation - 11% (normal 20 - 55%) LOW


I had a laparoscopic surgey for endometriosis July 26th and still feel just as tired now (5 weeks post opt) as I did after the surgery. I used to have heavy periods but as of november 2011 I've been on continuous birth control, so no more periods.

Since Dec 2011 I have been fighting chronic gastritis. I likely had a viral infection. 9 months later I still have stomach pains, bloating, and fatigue unlike anything Ive ever experienced and I am so fed up!

Do my blood results look like a type of anemia or are they not significant? I can't find any info about an anemia that matches these results!
