Maybe the stupidest question? But for GI bleeders, or even just tonsillectomies or wisdom teeth removal, etc., why can't, or doesn't, our stomach just digest blood like any other "food." Why does it almost always get thrown up?
Whatever possessed you to thinkup this question??? YUCK! It is an interesting one to think about! Just something I would never have thought of. But I can add folk with 'bloody noses' too.
This inquiring mind would like to know too. Think maybe there's an allergic response??? I don't know --- maybe somebody in hemotology would know?

Thank you for the comeback - I had forgotten about this thread. Still find it interesting. I'm not in any position to be checking with anyone, but I'll keep it in mind. Wonder what the pH is? Stomach is acidic so maybe it's too alkaline???
I wonder why I start to salivate a lot just before I throw up - I mean I just drool "sweet' too. Do others do this? This is getting to be a nasty topic. LOL:icon_roll
Thinking again to acid/base. People take antacids to neutralize sour stomach and that doesn't necessarily cause them to throw up, sooooo Back to question 1.
