How long will blood transfusion last until anemic again?

I had open heart surgery on July 6 and received a blood transfusion. I knew I was anaemic and asked dr for iron shots before surgery--they didn't listen then found my level below 8 before surgery and gave me blood. How long will it last. My fertin was about6 at the time of surgery so there is no reserve.

I'm getting weak again, palpitations and BP is 86/40.

Any help appreciated.
