My brother had a colonoscopy about 2 weeks ago and Monday he started passing blood like crazy. I took him to ER and they did a scan and found his stomach was bleeding. He was losing blood faster than they could give it to him. They had to go in and cauterize several veins and in 3 months they will have to go in again and cauterize maybe that many more. If it stops, that will be it but if it doesn't, they will have to go in again in another 3 months and cauterize some more. The whole one side of his stomach was raw and a vessel had burst causing the bleed. I hope he will get to go home tomorrow and will be ok now for the next 3 months at least or more.
