In brief: Something's wrong

If iron infusions over eight weeks didn't fix your anemia, it's either not due to iron deficiency or you still have serious blood loss.
I also see that somebody is giving you vitamin B12 for whatever reason. Please forgive my frankness. If there is not a misunderstanding, please get with a hematologist.
