I’m a bypasser so can’t really comment on specific band issues but I am also an experienced A&E nurse and what you are describing sounds like ‘coffee ground vomit’ this is a sign that ‘old blood’ is sitting in the stomach and is potentially a serious problem…usually related to ulceration in the .GI tract. It’s VERY important that this Is checked out as it is potentially very dangerous.
Hope this helps in persuading your friend to see a medical professional asap
