No I didn't. I didn't throw up anything for the first couple weeks. But if the surgeon says you're cool, then you probably are. Take it easy now!

That sounds very ABNORMAL to me. Are you throwing up a lot of blood or just a little bit? If it's a pretty good amount, I'd go to the ER and get checked. At LEAST get them to check your blood count to make sure you're not bleeding too much. They really need to be on the cautious side and see where the blood is coming from. A small problem can become a big problem quick!!! I hope you're ok!

Sorry, missed the part where you said you were still in the hospital.  I would be getting another opinion and demand that they check your blood counts. You still never said if it was a lot of blood or just a little bit.

No - I didn't throw up blood.  If you're still in the hospital, I guess you're in a good place for treatment.  I don't, however, believe that throwing up blood is normal.  Linda

I didn't throw up blood, but I did throw up a couple of times after surgery from the anesthesia

I guess if your Dr. says it is OK and you are still in the hospital, at least that is good. But I don't think it is normal. Is it bright red or dark red? Bright red would be fresh blood from a small bleeder which could be a problem. Dark blood may just be left from surgery. -Wanda

I threw up after my surgery, about 5 hours after...and about seven times.  I think it was from the anesthetic, but anyway, there was blood in mine.  Not much though, but you could tell.

They sedated me with valium for the night and gave me IV Dramamine, and two other kinds of meds, as they said I couldn't be throwing up that soon.  I was fine after that.

I am not sure what the case is with you, a couple days after surgery wouldn't be anesthetic, I wouldn't think.

Glad you went to the hospital!

Hope all is well soon.
