If your wife is not taking any Iron supplements
or not taking
any bismouth containing products, we have to consider slow
bleeding from the stomach or lower part ot the esophagus
Also make sure she is not taking aspirin or ibuprofen
over the counter medications.If she is, stop them immediately
and the stool should clear within 72 hours.But, if she continues
to have black stool
, she should see her doctor and get a referral
to see a gastroenterologist for endoscopic evaluation. She also
needs a complete blood work.
wish her well.
