Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic


Black stools mean mean BLOOD - from higher up in the digestive tract & altered by the enzymes...
In association with tiredness, it may mean the bleeding could be large and significant.
In such situations, time is important - earlier the better.
Seek help soon

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
