Hi.Welcome to HCM.I have analysed your query thoroughly.
My opinion is that,black stools may be due to upper gastrointestinal bleeding.The bleeding may be due to erosive nature of the lizol.My opinion is that,your husband may need endoscopic evaluation of the upper GI tract.Kindly consult your treating doctor for this.
