I am postmenopause for many years, almost 60, hypothyroid on meds.

A year ago I lost 3 pints of blood from stomach bleed from aspirin. The doc told me it would take 3 months to build up iron. Well have been on iron for a year. Think they transfused me 2 pints of blood.

Sometimes I would get too much iron which would lower my Ft3, so I would decrease my iron.

Now I feel anemic again. Am going to get bloodtests this week.

Doc either lied about 3 months getting it built up, or maybe blood volume too low, or maybe not on enough thyroid meds.

Just tossing things around to figure out what could be causing it

I'm back and the problem is my Ft3 is too low and that's why I am not hanging on to iron.
