Still passing blood, they best not delay my chemo on Monday or I'm going to be pissed. However, I'm realistic and until they locate the source, I'm not going anywhere.
I wouldn’t worry so much about delaying chemo. It’s not always clear that more is more.
Strange they didn’t find the source. If it’s red blood it should be quite low in the GI track. Maybe it’s in the ileum. Are they planning a capsule endoscopy? I just had an ulcer in my duodenum. That blood came out entirely black. They could do an upper GI endoscopy, but if the blood is red, that doesn’t seem worthwhile. Also when I had my ulcer the doctors told me not too worry too much. It doesn’t take a lot of blood for the stool to look like a horror show. You can’t tell from the stool.
As for your HGB, they also expect it to drop a point or so just being in the hospital, drawing blood, etc.
