Summary

All participants in this study will undergo an exercise stress test and undergo a blood test. Participants will then be randomly allocated to either receive an iron infusion or to receive placebo. A few weeks after their infusion, participants will undergo exercise testing again and complete a number of questionnaires. They will then have their surgery, and be interviewed 30 and 90 days after surgery to assess their recovery. It is hoped that this research will help determine whether iron infusions are beneficial for those with iron deficiency undergoing colorectal cancer surgery, and will help improve physical and mental health during their cancer treatment.
