Re: Stomach virus - vomited blood
just what is the actual surgery for?what problem?if you actually threw up what appeared to be the standard "coffee ground' looking blood,it just means that whatever is bleeding is either in the stomach or right above it.it is the way partially digested blood looks like.beleieve me, when my son was suffering with the varices from liver failure/portal hypertension,we saw that gross stuff way too often.this does need to be evaluated by your doc before any surgery is done.like B fly stated above,some meds you are given for and after surgery could really become a major complication for you as far as exascerbating the bleed or the original problem that is causing it.this just needs prompt attention as you ARE actively bleeding(or were at some point) from somewhere in the upper GI tract.i wish you luck with this and hopefully it is not something overly serious.it could just be a small tear along the upper tract caused by all the vomiting too.you wont know til your doc gets a look in there.please keep us posted on how you are doing,K? **
