Surgery and anemia?

DS2 will have surgery to repair a cleft lip soon. Our pediatrician suggested we start supplementing with iron so that he doesn't become anemic. He's EBF and I'm not comfortable adding supplements unless I KNOW he needs it. Has anyone had any issues with anemia after surgery? Especially in BF'd babies? I don't think there will be any major blood loss. Maybe I should just have his levels tested shortly after surgery...
