Can hernia cause low hemoglobin? Gallium test, MRI and bone marrow test done

Can a Hernia cause Low Hemoglobin? My Hemoglobin level is 89 (I am a Male, 51 years old, 6 4 , 220lbs)? But all tests performed were inconclusive- no anomalies- did Gallium test, MRI , Bone Marrow core test (bone marrow function is normal), etc. But I do have an abdominal hernia- so just wondering if this could have an influence on Hemoglobin level?

Very frankly speaking hernia has no relation with your low hemoglobin.
Get simple test like anemia profile and stool for occult blood done.
You must consult a hematologist for other possible investigations and finding the cause.
