Elderly patient with recurring gi bleeding and black stool. Is endo colonoscopy required to treat with ppi. Other options? Pepto bismo?
I had burning pain above belly button, black stool and drop in hgb indicating ulcer; stopped bleeding on own and resolved on its own. What is the likelyhood it will bleed again. Still Having burning pain.

Gastroscopy can define the lesion and it may be treated by local fulguration. Otherwise by arteriography a clot can be placed in the artery. If these methods don't work, surgical resection or vagotomy pylorplasty needed. ...Read more

You can also rinse with warm salt water to help sore gums and keep current with your dental exams. ...Read more

A water irrigation device like a waterpik is also very helpful. But first, see a dentist! ...Read more
