Please enter the chat to proceed.
Randall are you with me?
It seemed to be dark red/brown stool not diarea but a soft stool all the same color. the blood was red that mixed with the water. As I wiped It was dark red/brown
Do you have any lower abdominal pain too?
not today, yesterday and before
Thanks a lot for your input.
Any pain on pressing the stomach area?
not really, it was worse a couple days ago
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
No its not possible to aggravate hernia to the point of bleeding.
Specially in your case , its not likely that your bleeding is from stomach.
Its likely to be from lower intestines because in stomach related bleeding there is no fresh blood.
rather stool has to be dark like black tarry stool.
I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations avoidance of aspirin and brufen is necessary.
OTC Cap omeprazole 40mg once daily will take away the soreness.
I had oral cancer 11 years ago and I have a peg tube for food I've been on a feeding tube for 11 years
But i really suggest that you should visit ER because the bleeding issue needs investigations
But till that time drink lots of fluid like Gatorade.,
PEG tube is not likely to cause this bleeding because if blood comes from stomach, till the time it reaches rectum, it should turn black.
Any specific questions in your mind?
I'll go to the ER now
Yes that will be really good and safe for you because there is no other option.
I really wish that you get well soon.
please ask if you have any question because our discussion always remains open so you can always ask more and I will be glad to assist you. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated, regards.
Just got back from hospital. Bleeding ulcer. They scoped it, took a sample tissue, injected medicine. I got 5 quarts of fluid 2 pints of some other clear fluid and 5 pints of blood.
