Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you are having bleeding from your stomach which is causing the coffee ground matter.

Dr. David :

the alcohol you are drinking is causing your stomach to bleed

Dr. David :

this will or has already turned your stools tar black.

Dr. David :

this is a medical emergency, and you have to go to the hospital and A&E accident and emergency department right away to be seen by a doctor

Dr. David :

you will need an upper GI scope down into your stomach to see where you are bleeding from to stop the bleeding.

Dr. David :

or else you could very well bleed to death if the bleeding does not stop.

Dr. David :

you have to stop drinking alcohol or else this will kill you.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions.
