I am 9 years out from a gastric bypass.
At my annual blood work it was discovered I was anemic with ferritin at 7 and Vitamin D at 7.

I was given two iron infusions and put on weekly doses of vitamin D3 50000 iu. I was finished with the last infusion on feb 22. I had been taking the d3 for 6 weeks when I had the follow-up blood work.

The results, were
Hemoglobin 4.8
Hematocrit abnormal low
Vitamin D still Very low, but improved.

the hemoglobin and hematocrit were lower than the February, pre infusion levels!

Tis last Monday, a 9 days after the last blood work, I had another round of blood work done, my hemoglobin and hematocrit were both barely into the normal ranges at 11 and 34.

My MCV was 18, higher than the MCV in February. MCH was 27.4 and MCHC was 32.7.

What could be going on? Does it just take the body awhile to respond to the iron? Is the Vitamin D deficiency causing the weird numbers?

Is there nothing to worry about now?
