approx 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with pneumonia and

approx 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with pneumonia and was hospitalized for 10 days. However, I've been having these black tarry stools that don't go away even tho I'm eating a balanced diet. They analyzed it in hospital and Dr. said it was negative for blood in stool which is what Dr was concerned about. I am improving but the black stools persist

I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis four years ago. Since then I have had pneumonia four times. Last week I was exposed to a lot of outdoor smoke and my chest and throat felt raw. I had pain in my ribs and that was made worse by touching. No fever or sweating. Saw my doctor and he xrayed two days ago. Has not said anything but i wonder if it was a bronchial attack or heart involvement. I continue to have a dry cough when outside or at night time.
