GastroIntestinal Bleeding in Lagos
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a symptom of a digestive tract problem. Blood is often found in faeces or vomit, but it isn’t necessarily noticeable, even though it causes the stool to appear dark or tarry. The severity of the bleeding can range from moderate to major, and it can be fatal.
The amount of blood you lose will vary from a few drops to a life-threatening haemorrhage. Blood can only be detected by examining the stool in certain circumstances when there is very little leakage.
