I am 66 and just had blood tests and my hemo was 9.0 and my hemoticrit was 29.1. I am single and do not eat well and I do not eat red meat much at all. Pretty much just chicken and fish. A stool sample tested positive for blood in stools but I have not noticed any or any dark stools. I am regular as clock work. stools have become less in diameter but still regular. I am on a stool softener. Should I be worried.

Hello. I ve been noticing black grit in my stool. Last Wednesday I had what I thought was a flu--aches and upset stomach. I vomited only once which was bile and the last bit had a black grit (smaller than a dime) in it. Now I see the grit for the last couple days in my stool. I stopped eating meat 4 weeks ago and have been eating a balanced nutritional diet and walking regularly. I feel great otherwise.
