Question High RDW-CV and IRF of Reticulocytes

My RDW-CV is at 22.4% and Reticulocytes IRF at 19.%. Absolute reticulocytes are 0.07 10*12/L. I had been on Iron supplementation for 4 weeks before these results which helped my hemoglogin and other numbers though many are still lower than normal.

I've been referred to have an hysterectomy to stop the bleeding. Will this surgery be enough to bring down my RDW-CV and IRF? I've read that type of results indicate bone marrow stress. I'm wonder if the surgery will not relieve the stress and may even cause too much stress with blood loss during the process.

Thank you for any insights
