Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.
The black stools are most likely related to the extra iron that you are taking. Not only do they cause constipation
, but the stools also turn a very dark color. I would say, though, that with the history of your ulcer and pain reports, ulcer disease with an upper GI bleed would also explain the same findings with regard to your stool. You need to contact your doctor. In the meantime, you also need to be on an antacid
daily and stool softeners.
I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on the link above to directly ask me a question!
