Vomiting After Eating And Drinking For A Week?
Hello, want to ask. So I have complaints of vomiting after eating or drinking. A lot or a little goes into the stomach, it will vomit again until it really feels empty stomach. Even the bitter yellow liquid comes out. This has been going on for almost a month. Until my weight dropped dramatically, from 68kg to 60kg. Previously I was treated at a public clinic, and the doctor suggested to check Hb at the hospital. Do I have to check the Hb? Then I guess if my pain is at risk?
