Weird food Cravings anyone?

My TVH surgery on Jan 27th led to a second one on the 28th for severe blood loss. My hemoglobin level hit a 5 before they gave me two pints of blood in the hospital. When I left the hospital on the 30th my hemoglobin was 7.5. I am on iron pills to help me build up my blood levels. Is anyone in the same boat I am and having food cravings like you did when you were prego? A couple of days ago I desperately wanted a Snickers for the peanut/caramel combination. Today I had to have fruit! Especially those little orange slices in a can! Anyone else having cravings, or am I just going crazy?

Oh, yes, this happened to me.
Oatmeal with apricots, fried fish, citrus, peanut butter, and many I am sure I don't remember. I have been anemic for a long time, but this hit about 3 weeks after surgery. I am at 9 weeks now, taking iron (almost normal levels now) and It has gone away-well, it left a few pounds on me, and , yes, it was weird.

I'm in the midst of serious cravings. Also canned oranges! And crunchy peanut butter. Test of my Willpower moment.

Cabbage....tons and tons of cabbage. And to add to the weirdness of this, I wasn't anemic and the craving lasted at least a year and a half after my surgery.

I have had tons of cravings. It just not one thing. It tons of things I normally don't eat. I am at week 8 and it's balancing out now. There for a while it was crazy. I didn't give in to most of the craving so I didn't balloon up.

Fresh fruit, especially pineapple, but mostly anything wet & cold.
