Vomiting or Coughing Blood

Vomiting or Coughing Blood

Vomiting Blood

Vomiting blood (hematemasis) is caused when there is bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach, or small intestine). If is has mixed with acid from the stomach, the blood may appear dark and granular much like coffee grounds. Hematemasis may also occur following a significant nosebleed.

Treatment

A gastrointestinal specialist should evaluate even small amounts of vomited blood, as this may be a sign that a significant bleed is coming soon. Dizziness, lightheadedness, confusion, or white-ashen skin (pallor) may signify that a substantial amount of blood has been lost (perhaps a lot more than witnessed) and we recommend medical attention.

Coughing Blood

The medical term for coughing blood from the lungs is hemoptysis. Scant amounts of blood mixed with expectorated mucous may occur with pneumonia or bad cases of bronchitis. Otherwise, hemoptysis can be a sign of serious lung disease. As with many other types of internal bleeding, a small amount of expelled blood may be a warning that severe bleeding is impending.

Treatment

We recommend that a doctor evaluate all hemoptysis that is not associated with a known lung infection.

MedToGo International is a wonderful company to work with. they will book everything for you or whichever part you want. Also, they will tell you which is the best country for which type of surgery you are needing. They keep in touch long after your procedure to make sure all is going well. I hope to have at least one more procedure if my health is up to it. This factor added to my secure feelings with them for they will not do a surgery if they feel there are any doubts on the out come. This gave me even more confidence that they aren’t just money hungry.
