Hello good people.
I need to get a FOBT (fecal occult blood test
) to check for blood
in my stool, to see whether I need a colonoscopy. But I have heart disease. My last heart attack was 3 years ago. I take a daily full-strength aspirin and a daily 75mg plavix
. I know aspirin can cause false positive FOBT results and I read that it's good to stop taking
it for 7 days prior to a FOBT, and to stop taking plavix
for 3 days prior to the test.
