Hello,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

How much blood was present in the vomitus on each episode?

Did you have any other symptom?

Exactly where did you feel the pain?

Hello,

I was waiting for your reply.

I noticed you did not see the info request & went offline.

I am sending the answer so that you can see it when you come on line.

If you have any query after reading it, please ask.

If the bleeding is minute, then you can wait.

Small amount of blood can come with vomitus from tear during forceful vomiting.

In such situation, you can wait and observe.

As you are feeling tired, if the amount of blood was significant, then you should consult doctor asap.

You should not wait for scheduled evaluation by a gastroenterologist.

Though the blood vomiting has stopped, still you need an evaluation urgently.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Regards.
