There is nothing to fear from it as the cause has been found and once treated,you can be cured completely.
What you require is ...
Medicines to heal your ulcers,which your doctor must have prescribed to you.Generally proton pump inhibitors like PANTOPROZOLE or OMEPRAZOLE are prescribed.
Avoiding spicy and greasy foods and avoidance of alcohol and smoking are very important.
Taking hematinics to improve your hemoglobin levels of blood.
In next couple of months,you shall be completely all right with medications and your lifestyle changes.

hi there, bleeding ulcers can be very debilitating and your blood pressure in alarmingly low. You need to get admitted in the hospital and treated with transfusion of whole blood or fluids to stabilize your blood pressure before any other definitive treatment can be given. Please do consult a gastroenterologist and get early intervesion done as your condition could be quite serious if not treated on time and appropriately. Take care.
