A hemoglobin of 11.1 is mildly anemia. Checking for various causes - post-surgical, GI or GYN - should all be considered. If there is no clear source of bleeding, obtaining a hematology evaluation can be considered to determine if there are any intrinsic blood-borne diseases present.
A transfusion is less likely to be needed at this level. However, if there are symptoms, I would discuss this with her personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
