I had a pre employment blood test and had high RDW and low mpv, is this something to worry about?

No. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside for each value. Mpv is famously variable and like rdw, if you feel well probably a value outside reference range means nothing. I trust you are not marginally iron-deficient (how's the stomach post-surgery?) or have missed thal-minor, itself a non-problem. Read more...
No not at all. If your CBC is normal, these two values have little significance. I would ignore them but make sure your hb, WBC and platelet counts are normal. Read more...

I had a blood test done a while ago and I had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom I have is foamy urine. What could this?

Test results. I doubt there is a connection between low platelet volume and your foamy urine. Did they check your urine itself? Or check your kidney function? Do you feel well? Any test can give falsely abnormal results, or results that are not in the normal range, but it doesn't really matter as long as you feel well. If you are well, don't worry. If worried, as to repeat the test, check the urine and kidneys. Read more...

Having esophagus/stomach issues for2 years. I'm wondering if having a consistently low MPV blood test and recently high red cell count is significant?

It depends/unlikely, It's unlikely that this poses a problem based on the blood results. If your red cell count was low, not high, that could be a reason to suspect something, like a bleeding GI/stomach ulcer. The MPV, assuming it means mean platelet volume doesn't have any obvious connection to this and if the platelet number is normal, it's likely no problem. Finally the GI issues themselves may be unrelated. . Read more...
