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

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.

Azithromycin: Azithromycin can be taken with or without food, so try taking it with food.
