Question: weight loss, boyles on scalp and green looking vomite


 Abe Gipson - Mon Apr 16, 2007 9:41 pm

My mother-in law is 64 and over the past 3 weeks has had several unexplained symptoms. First of she has very high blood pressure which she is on medication for and has been for years. She is tired all the time and very weak. Two weeks ago she has 3 or 4 boyles in the top of her head which the doctor lanced and put her on antibiotics. Then she started losing weight and appetite. Today she vomited green looking stuff and her bowl movement was black looking. She holds her stomach alot like she is in pain but tells us it doesn't hurt. I think she doesn't want us to worry about her. Let me know if any of these symptoms ring a bell with you. thanks Kim[

User avatar I would strongly recommend that your Mother-in-law follow up with her doctor soon.

Her green vomiting may be indicative of an intestinal blockage. The black stools may also be indicative of bleeding in her intestinal tract. This would also explain the fatigue if she has been loosing enough blood.

Her symptoms are concerning and she should probably have some imaging studies and blood tests to help figure out what is going on.

Best wishes.
