Complications could include:
If the bleeding occurs in your esophagus, stomach, or initial portion of the small intestine, it is considered upper GI bleeding.
Peritonitis is the inflammation of a thin layer of tissue inside the abdomen. Caused by bacteria or fungus, it causes tenderness, bloating, fatigue, greying of the skin, and other problems.
Intestinal obstruction is the partial or total blockage of the intestines, which can be a medical emergency. Find out about causes and treatment.
If your small or large intestine becomes blocked, fluid and digested food can't pass through. This can cause bloating, stomach cramps, and burping.
