blood transfusion

Hi, I have lost 52 pounds in a year, I cant breathe, all my bones stick out (breast, ribs, elbows, back, etc...) my hemoglobin is 11.4. Im 5'5 and my weight is 110#'s. I need a blood transfusion desparately as I cant breathe and I get dizzy all the time. No one will give me one as the new Red Cross guidelines are 10.0. I had bariatric surgery in 2002 and have had one other transfusion before. I cant take iron pills as I dont absorb them. I have tried liquid iron and I cant get it down-it makes me sick. Anyone know how fast my hemoglobin will fall so I can get a transfusion?
Kim
