black stomach contents means there is a bleed from the stomach most likely

he needs to have a GI doctor look down into his stomach with an upper endoscopy to look for sources of bleeding.

the source of the bleeding needs to be stopped

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
