Concerned about my test results

I went to the doctor yesterday, and found out I am seriously anemic... The doc gave me a prescription for iron (I think 325 2 times a day) and wants me to come back in Mon/Tue for a recheck to make sure the #s are not decreasing. I shared my results with a friend who is a doctor and she seemed more concerned, and said if I was her pt she'd have me on iron infusions... My results are below, what do you think?

RBC 4.04 x10^6/uL
Hgb 8.9 g/dL
Hct 29.0%
MCV 71.7 fL
MCH 22.1 pg
MCHC 30.8 g/dL
RDW 15.5%

Re: Concerned about my test results

No one has any thoughts?

Went for a recheck yesterday, and here are the new #s. He said no significant change, so I guess he doesn't think I have a bleed somewhere. Maybe the iron and Vit C will help...

RBC 3.83
Hgb 8.8
Hct 27.8
MCV 72.5
MCH 23
MCHC 31.7
RDW 16.1
