Had a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. Now have pain on right side above chest with bloody stool and throwing up blood. Is the cancer causing it?

Had a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. Now have pain on right side above chest with bloody stool and throwing up blood. Is the cancer causing it?

Seems unlikely: Hi. Was your thyroid cancer treated (surgery, radioactive iodine, TSH suppression)? What is your thyroglobulin (stimulated, and with TSH suppressed)? Not clear where your pain is; is it in the neck? Can you feel a mass? I think I can pretty well guarantee you that vomiting blood and having bloody stool have nothing to do with thyroid cancer. See your doc about the bloody vomit & stool & neck pain. ...Read more

Is a very small amount of blood in stool bad?

Is a very small amount of blood in stool bad?

Depends: We risk stratify all symptoms. We put together a puzzle to include age, is blood bright red or not, is it actually in or on the stool or on the tissue or toilet bowl or all.

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

No: Multivitamins don't do that in the U.S. But, if a person takes the kids' gummy vitamins, he can chew 4-6 of them each day to add up to an adult dose. Because they taste like candy, they are likely to make him want more candy, Gummy Bears, chocolate, or snack foods. This is not a nutritious way to do things, but is likely the only way any multivitamin can make a person want to eat something else ...Read more
