Re: Blood in stool after fight
I would think that finding ANY blood in your stools would be somewhat "alarming".he was right in sending you to the hospital,why did you not actually go?seeing black blood,is digested blood,meaning it was located(the source) at the stomach level or above.what type of 'pain' are we talking here?did you take a direct hit at the stomach(right between and slightly below,and slightly left of the upside down 'V" area ribcage)level?anyplace above that level?did you have a bloody nose at all with some heavy bleeding?this could also explain the black blood too.
i would carefully watch your stools and look for any possible symptoms of bleeding or other related GI stuff,and it wouldn't hurt to have this area scanned/scoped if this occurs again.'something' had to be actively bleeding at one time in order to have what you had.you just need to be certain that that source is not active anymore.were you experiencing any GI symptoms at all BEFORE this incident took place?like maybe an ulcer or any other stomach related issues?you just need to make certain that this has stopped and is no longer any kind of threat to your health in any way.if at any time you start feeling "not right" or that bleeding reoccurs,get thee to the ER to have this evaluated.good luck,FB
