Pain in the lower right groin area. Blood in occult test. Colonoscopy and endoscopy scheduled. Any advice?
I went to urgent care 2 weeks ago with pain in lower right groin thinking I had a hernia from dead lifts. Doctor found blood in occult test and a hemoglobin level of 9.7 in cbc. Am scheduled for both colonoscopy and endoscopy in five days. I usually work out hard five days a week and have not done so since I went to urgent care. Can I work out with this hg level or not?
Occult blood in the stools can be due to many causes like colorectal cancer,adenoma's,bleeding peptic ulcer etc.
You can do workouts until you get strained.
If you comeback with above reports,i will clarify further
Wish you good health
