Bleeding Peptic Ulcer Disease
What to do if I have a suspected peptic ulcer. Could rectal bleeding have something to do with that?
Perhaps: Bleeding from a peptic ulcer generally presents as black tarry stools, not bright red blood. If you have copious amounts of maroon and red blood this could be from a peptic ulcer, however, this is only with very severe hemorrhage. Small amounts of red blood from the rectum are usually from the colon or hemorrhoids. You should always discuss bleeding with your doctor as some evaluation is needed.See 2 more doctor answers
How do you know if a peptic ulcer heals? On Dexalant but still have some burning and pressure at times. Would I know if got worse or started bleeding?
Unfortunately it: Is a bit complex and sometimes you will not know if it is getting worse especially if you are above 50 years of age. At your age, abdominal pain may be one of the signs that healing is not complete, but other than that you won't know unless you get to have an endoscopy. We go by the symptoms and these are pretty accurate in most of the people. I hope it gives you some clarity. Thanks

My mom in hospital 30 days. Signs, symptoms of peptic ulcer's. Ruptured. Bleed to death there. It was known but not mentioned. Avoidable. Why was surgery, treatment, advising not done? Thanks.
I am very sorry: I am truly so sorry for your loss. Understanding why may help ease the hurt, anger. Active bleeding ulcers can have a 10-14 percent mortality, & esophageal perforation, producing even greater rates. Medicine that prevent bleeding from stopping, such as motrin, don't help the situation. Making sure nothing congenital present, like a bleeding disorder, may help prevent this tragedy from recurring.See 1 more doctor answer

Weight loss and PUD: Involuntary weight loss is always considered a clinical "red flag." that being said, it is not a surprise that peptic ulcer disease patients may experience less interest in eating due to the pain that meals engender. Under such circumstance, weight loss may follow. However, stomach ulcers may on occasion arise in the setting of cancer, severe physiologic stress, trauma. Don't ignore "red flags.".
Ulcer/infection: Vitamin B12 requires intrinsic factor secreted by the stomach in order to be absorbed. If enough of the stomach cells have been damaged by ulcers, a lack of intrinsic factor secretion could lead to a decreased absorption of B12 and pernicious anemia. Infection with helicobacter pylori can lead to chronic gastritis which can also lead to both ulcers and anemia.See 1 more doctor answer
Hopefully not: If you are managed with chronic acid reducing medications, you run the risk of low B12 levels in your blood. Get tested and supplement if recommended. You should not experience B12 anemia if under medical care.
