1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes but..

A concern about upper GI bleeding is low.
Coffee ground like matter in diarrhea is not the same as emesis. But let your doctor know.

In brief: Possibly

Black watery stools can be blood from high up in the bowel.
Many possibilities such as ulcer or crohn's disease. For this he needs to see a gastroenterologist.
