Is normal for there to be specs of blood in vomit immediately after appendectomy? Son began to vomit dark green liquid, still vomiting but normal now?

Is normal for there to be specs of blood in vomit immediately after appendectomy? Son began to vomit dark green liquid, still vomiting but normal now?

Possibly, get check: This is not common to cough blood from appendectomy, but it may be unrelated to the surgery. Could be from the nose or throat irritation from intubation; also rare. Nevertheless, call your surgeon and be safe. ...Read more

Up and had the need to vomit, though what only came out was some acid green liquid, might it have been bile?

Up and had the need to vomit, though what only came out was some acid green liquid, might it have been bile?

Biliary emesis: Bile is typically a golden yellow to green color. It mixes with food to help digest dietary fats. When bile backs up into the stomach, it may appear in your vomitus. When persistent, it can lead to alkaline reflux and stomach irritation. Lots of common things can cause bilary emesis, but if persistent, worsening, or associated with pain, tenderness, weight loss, blood then please have it evaluated. ...Read more

My vomit is a pure liquid (yellow/green color) and I have migraines. How do I treat this?

My vomit is a pure liquid (yellow/green color) and I have migraines. How do I treat this?

Bilious vomiting: Your stomach is empty; no food to throw up. The bile pigment bilirubin, which is reddish brown, is pretty well known, but bilirubin is made from another bile pigment, biliverdin, which is green. It's leaking from your duodenum into your stomach and thence up & out. Treating the migraine & the nausea & vomiting will "treat" this. ...Read more

Azithromycin has induced severe nausea and vomiting. Vomit was initially greenish with consistency of snot. Now it is just green liquid. What do I do?

Azithromycin has induced severe nausea and vomiting. Vomit was initially greenish with consistency of snot. Now it is just green liquid. What do I do?

Azithromycin: Azithromycin can be taken with or without food, so try taking it with food. If that doesn't help, you should notify the provider who prescribed you the Azithromycin and tell them what you are experiencing. Sometimes antibiotics cause nausea. It is not necessarily a reason to stop the medication. ...Read more

I've had all liquid diarrhea for 4 days, first dark green, then yellowish and now pale yellow. No vomiting or fever, just fatigued. When should I seek?

I've had all liquid diarrhea for 4 days, first dark green, then yellowish and now pale yellow. No vomiting or fever, just fatigued. When should I seek?

Enteritis: I would try, first of all, to reduce my food intake. I would start with a clear liquid diet for 24 hours and then gradually increase by adding more nutrient fluids and then as the diarrhea gradually stops continue to increase my intake. If this does not help please see a physician ...Read more

He has vomited a green clumpy looking blob, has only done it once then has vomited clear liquid ?

He has vomited a green clumpy looking blob, has only done it once then has vomited clear liquid ?

Watch: The green color sounds like bile and is not necessarily a sign of trouble. If this continues to happen have him examined by a medical practitioner. If he vomits blood, that needs an exam or if he complains of bad stomach pain. ...Read more
