Since my sister hit her teenage years she has always gotten really badly sick. She used to throw up and pass out as she was doing it. The doctors said it had something to do with her Gallblatter so they removed it. It's been a year since her operation and she is now vomiting bile. The doctors can't figure out what is wrong with her. It's not dehydration because she always is drinking water or vitamin water. She has a three year old daughter that she is raising on her own and she can't lose her mother. I'm really worried for her. She went to the bathroom today at the hairdressers and started randomly throwing up, became dizzy, and passed out. When she woke up she was terrified but she didn't know what to do and i went to pick her up because she was afraid of passing out on the way home. She has a huge bump on her head from hitting who knows what when she fell and right now she's sleeping. All i know is that usually when someone vomits up bile there is something serious going on. If anyone has any suggestions on what to do please teel me. I want to help her any way i can.
