Yes, : Yes, a person can vomit after being punched in the stomach as the organs in the stomach are your digestive organs where food is digested. The trauma and pain of the punch can cause nausea and vomiting it is not, however, normal to be punched in the stomach! if you are a victim of abuse, get help, call 911 if you need help.

Yes: It is normal to vomit after being punched in the stomach. The bruise is probably a black and blue mark from being hit and it will resolve with time.
