One month ago, my hbg was 9.5 with low mcv, mch, mchc. Now my hbg is 8.6. No heavy menstral cycle but positive blood in stool. What could this mean?

In brief: GI bleeding possible

With your hemoglobin dropping and positive blood in your stool, you have bleeding from your GI tract.
It could be coming from any part, from stomach to anus. At your age of 51, you really need to have this investigated. Colonoscopy would be one study you probably need. Please see a GI specialist as soon as possible. Be well.

In brief: Hematochezia

Blood in the stool needs an immediate evaluation.
It is a sign of bleeding from somewhere in the GI tract. It may be from ulcers, tumors, inflammatory processes including infection. See a GI doctor asap and have this investigated. Good luck.

In brief: Iron deficiency

Anemia at this age together with blood in stool .
The cause of the anemia is your GI system and should have colonoscopy to diagnose or rule our colon cancer , hemorrhoid , anal fissure , div inflammatory bowel disease , polyps and many other . Most importantly colon cancer should be excluded. Good luck.
