Doctor called and told me I am Anemic and gave me these results.

Component Results
Component Standard Range Your Value
Iron 40-175 mcg/dL 48
TIBC 250-450 mcg/dL 358
[B]Iron, % Saturation 15-50 % (calc) 13[/B]

I've looked up what Iron Saturation means on the web and have no idea what any of the jargon means. Can someone please explain what it means to me in easy to understand terms?! Explain like I am five? How bad is this?
Doc is prescribing me Iron Pills and Vitamin C pills.

I'm going in for a complete hysterectomy with removal of cervix on April 21st and the doctor especially wants my Iron up for that. Thing is I am more terrified of Iron poisoning from to much or having severe side effects from the pills than my surgery!

I have a really sensitive stomach these days.
