Cause of vomiting of a black, fairly large (1-1.5 inch) solid "fuzzy" material, along with undigested food that was consumed 3+ days ago?

Not entirely sure: Not clear what this is, but it is quite unusual sounding and vomiting undigested food from 3+ days ago is not a good sign - b/c it means you have not processed any food in 3+ days. Concern would be an obstruction somewhere, but must be evaluated in conjunction with other sign/symptoms and findings on exam. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance must also be evaluated and treated urgently if present. ...Read more

An hour after I ate I threw up vomit that was solid & looked like undigested chunks of food. I feel weak & light-headed. Why would the vomit be solid?

Timeframe-undigested: Digestion time varies; It takes approximately 6 to 8 hours after you eat for food to pass through the stomach into the small intestines. One hour after you ate, the contents of your stomach were not digested. So the vomitus had solid food particles. I hope you feel better now. ...Read more

Vomiting: Vomiting may be caused by a virus or some food that wasn't tolerated. If she hasn't vomited in an hour, start slowly with small amounts of clear liquid (pedialyte)- just 1/2 ounce to start.

See your doctor if vomiting persists more than 2-3 times. ...Read more

HI. I threw up undigested food I ate 12 hours earlier. I woke up nauseous. Could it be food poisoning or gastroparesis (does it come and go)?

HI. I threw up undigested food I ate 12 hours earlier. I woke up nauseous. Could it be food poisoning or gastroparesis (does it come and go)?

Indigestion: More than likely it was plain indigestion of food in your stomach when you went to bed. We reserve the diagnosis of gastroparesis for chronic difficulties of stomach emptying.

My 4 yr old vomited twice last night with undigested food. 1 month ago he had high alkaline urine and it smells the same now, is this a stomach issue?

See Your Doctor NOW: 4 y.o w/ "smell" to urine/vomiting. In a female child urinary symptoms with vomiting point to a urinary tract infection. Serious consequences can occur if not treated. Be aware that children have limited communication skills and may not complain of full symptoms; cues that accurately pinpoint illness are easily missed.
