Hi and thanks for the question,
He certainly has gastrointestinal tract hemorrage or bleeding. This requires an urgent endoscopy/firboscopy and an urgent evaluation by a gastroenterologist.
I suggest you take him to the emergency department for resuscitation care and rapid contacting of the gastroenterologist on call.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo Bain, MD. Its an emergency to be evaluated please.
