Has anybody had Varices it started for me last March I was working and just felt tired then I vomited blood it was bright red and I put it down to taking Ibruofen on a empty stomach I was always getting told off for it. I was quite a heavy drinker being in the Army it was the norm. About 4 hour's later I vomited blood again but it was violent and very dark. Carnt remember much after that until I came around in a different hospital I went in and all my family were there they banded the Varices kept me in a week then came home. My GP explained it to me and I totally stopped drinking. 10 days later it happened again same senario. Then in May I woke up thinking it was a dream my sister was holding my hand saying your going to be ok. Then I found out I had collapsed at home losing 4 litres of blood a hour a d was put into a induced coma. Then it started the memory loss doing things out of character I thought it was the medication but its brain damage. Then I got diagnosed with diabetes my knees have virtually packed in and had my driving license revoked. I have no touched alcohol since that day. But after coming through all that I am very depressed and I wonder why I survived to end up like this
