Blood From Ulcer?: Your boyfriend should see his GI physician. The source of the blood needs to be discovered. Most bleeding ulcers resolve with medical therapy but recurrent GI bleeding requires repeat upper endoscopy.. Also, this bleeding may be totally unrelated to his prior ulcer and may require colonoscopy if the upper endoscopy is normal.

Call your doctor now: You may be bleeding from your "stomach ulcer". That's the first priority. Go to ER. You may have to postpone gall bladder surgery for a while
