I use to be anemic from a surgery. It probably took me close to a year to fully get back to my normal self. But then again, I still get side effects. Ask your doctor.

There's really no way to tell, except to ask a doctor. But, know that if you are getting a proper diet and increasing your iron, you're definitely on the right road! I'd check in with your doc to see what he thinks

It depends on the type of anemia you have. I was recently diagnosed with two forms, and had had a type in the past. I personally don't even notice a difference in my self when i am on treatment/after treatment, so therefore it depends on each individual. Although my doctor says my blood is okay at the moment, i can't even tell the difference between feeling normal and anemic. I am always tired and drained..

There is definitely no 'set time' for recovery from anemia. It can take from a relatively short period of time (a few months) to a longer time, such as a year or more. It really is dependent on the person and the changes in your diet/medication that you're taking. I think that if you are concerned about your anemia/recovery time or simply want some more information, it would be a good idea to talk to your doctor.

Take care!
