Vomiting Blood - Hiatal Hernia

I recently returned from the ER and ICU at the hospital after I vomited about 3 gallons of blood (& bile) last week. When they scoped me to figure out what was wrong, they found a tear in my esophagus and said it would heal on its own within 92 hours. They said the vomiting may have caused the tear, but I know I was bleeding internally prior to vomiting as my stools were black. I do have a hiatal hernia which may have something to do with the tear, but I have no idea what caused the bleeding and no one can seem to help figure it out. Has anyone ever been in a similar situation? I was given Protonix following this episode through the IV in the hospital and it seemed to make my esophagus go nuts and hurt badly. I told them I do not want that again. Please help, right now I think I may have a recurrence but have no idea what the cause of this is.
Thanks, in advance, for you assistance.

Re: Vomiting Blood - Hiatal Hernia

I tore a hole in my esophogus from vomiting so often. It was painful to swallow, but other than that I had no symptoms. It was first found because there was blood in my stool. I was put on 60 mg of Prevacid a day and scoped the next week. The scope confirmed the whole, and it healed a few days later.
