Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Sorry to hear about this
Was it a fresh blood ?
Was the blood mixed with food particles or just a streak on outside ?
Any change in stool color ?
Do you have cough as well ?
Thanks for the information
Just few more information before I can answer your problem
Can you name her current medicines ?
This sore throat appeared after the vomiting or it was already there ?
Thanks for information
Blood in vomiting can be a feature of inflamed stomach or an ulceration in the stomach. If your wife had this blood in vomitus I would suggest that she needs to be investigated. An upper GI endoscopy will be helpful in looking at the esophagus and stomach directly. Sometime after persistent vomiting a streak of blood can appear in the vomitus due to a tear in the stomach lining. She should take omeprazole and do see the doctor in ER right now for further evaluation. A complication of the breast cancer leading to compromised liver and thus a variceal bleed need to be ruled out.(although chances are very low considering breast cancer is currently under control) Also if you are not sure whether the blood was in vomitus or cough a lung evaluation to rule out any metastasis in lung will be required. Hopefully it will be a minor tear in the stomach and will settle with treatment but she needs investigations.
Feel free to ask if any more question
