Anemia: blood loss from surgery trauma. Why no iron?

Male,63, severe weakness and pulse 40% faster than prior to the procedure. I had lithotripsy which caused a massive internal bleed. Once found they gave me two units of blood but the hospitalist insisted that iron supplements were not necessary. I have 2/3 to 3/4 the amount of blood count I had prior to the surgery.
Do doctors prescribe iron supplements after acute blood loss?
