Customer Question

I coughed up about a cup of dark red blood at 4:00am. I had ear surgery on July 18. Called ENT they said they did not think it had anything to do with my ear. Called my primary physician she said she thinks it's to do with surgery. My doctor said if it happens again make an appointment. What should I do? I have called the ENT to let them know what my doctor said I am waiting for a reply

This should not happen with ear surgery.

Sometimes an ulcer that you did not know you had can bleed after the stress of any surgery.
