Yes, CALL IMMEDIATELY, it is most certainly blood, as even bile has a more greenish cast to it.

In all likelihood, it is old blood from the surgery.

Sounds like old blood hope you are ok. Call the doctor that's not normal.

It does sound like old blood; often bloody vomit appears like old 'coffee grounds' and is typically black in color (it may have a very distinct smell as well... hard to describe but you will likely be surprised by the smell). If you have active bleeding, it would be bright red. I agree that your doctor will certainly want to know what you are experiencing... take care.

You should def call your Dr but if you took anything like leprosy bismol or something it can make your mouth, stools & vomit blackish. I once was scared to death by such an occurrence. I was convinced I was dying of lung cancer....alas that was not the case!
