Unexplained mild anemia with hgb ranging from 12.5 to 13.6., benign polyps removed, benign stomach polyps + mild weakness. What would be the cause?
Find cause: Don't accept "unexplained" as the cause of an anemia, even a mild one.

We can't do that for you, and if your personal physician is hasn't (these can be hard workups), get with a hematologist. ...Read more

Check with doctor: 13mm is half an inch, so 16mm is a little more than that. There's some inflammation (redness, pain, swelling) at the healing spot, but one can call the GI doctor to see if the healing is on schedule, compared with the doctor's experiences with his other patients who had similar polyps removed.

I would see your doctor to get this done if you didn't already. ...Read more
