How does asprin cause internal bleeding? Would there not be warning signs/symptoms before it was serious?
Thins the blood: Aspirin interferes with the ability your blood to clot. It does this by interfering with the ability of your platelets to clot. The platelets are little cell like structures that help the blood clot. If their efficacy is interfered with they will not clot and bleeding occurs. It can also irritate the lining of the stomach and intestines which can also cause ulcers and bleeding.See 1 more doctor answer
How hard does a blow to the abdomen have to be to cause internal bleeding? How many hours before symptoms arise?
It depends: Any abdominal trauma has the potential to injure your spleen or other viscera, and cause internal bleeding. That said, it generally takes a great deal of force to cause internal bleeding, such as from a car wreck or serious altercation. However, if you have a condition that gives you splenomegaly, it is much easier to be injured. This is a common problem with infectious mononucleosis.
After a heart cath, can I develop internal bleeding? And if so what symptoms would I likely have?
Yes: If a heart cath. Was done through the femoral artery ("groin access"), the catheter is inserted very close to the abdominal cavity. If there is bleeding from the cath site, it may bleed into the abdomen/pelvis. This may result in back/abdominal pain, lightheadedness/dizziness from blood loss, and/or fast heart rate. If this is a concern, it requires prompt evaluation in your emergency dept.See 1 more doctor answer

I had emergency surgery in Feb 2017 due to internal bleeding. I am still experiencing pain from this. How long does it take for this to heal?
It depends.: What kind of emergency surgery? What was operated on and why?
Why risk life vs OR?: All methods are procedures: endoscopy might access some sources; interventional radiology and angiography might reach others. If bleeding internally, surgical access and resolution are most common approach--except in limited situations with solid organs (liver / spleen) after some traumas that are watched very closely for cessation. Good luck!
Depends: It depends on what is the cause of the internal bleeding.
