Hi Bawa, So sorry that your sis is going through this.

My husband also had internal bleeding, however his was caused by having a stent placed in his esophagus. It caused minor tearing and his blood was just too thin to clot. They tried several things to get this under control, although for him, it didn't really help much. They did many blood transfusions, tried a drug (which I can't remember the name of right now, but it was meant to help thicken the blood and help it to clot). They also put in an NG tube to drain the blood from his stomach. They also were supposed to try radiation on the bleed site, to try to zap it closed, but other complications took over and they were not able to do more than one rad session.

I know that's not much help, but more than anything I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and your sister.
