Abdominal pain, blood in stools, normal colonoscopy, scheduled for sonography.Is it advisable to drink?

Hey. I ve been having some abdominal pain , and bloody stool . I just had a colonoscopy on the 11th and nothing was found. My follow up is on the 18th and will be having a sonogram of my gallbladder soon. My 21st birthday is this weekend and it s a tradition in my family to take the birthday girl on her 21st to a bar for drinks. If I drink, will my doctor be able to tell and should I not drink?

Hello Thrash and welcome to HCM
I have read your mail in detail and wants to help you out. As you have blood in stool, so it is sure that something is wrong in your digestive system or Liver that is causing bleeding. In both the conditions drinking is not advisable at all. Drinking can increase your blood in stool. So everyone's advice in this condition always remain stop drinking.
In my opinion don't drink till you have diagnosis and cured the cause of bleeding.
Avoid smoking, junk and spicy food. Take high fiber diet that will improve your digestive system. Drink a lot of water.
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes
