Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Since when is he having the pain?

In which part of abdomen?

How are stool & urine?

When did he have fever?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank your for your response. We took him to urgent care, and then to E.R., after much testing, ultra sound and CAT scan, it was determined he had a ruptured appendix and underwent emergency surgery last night. He will be in the hospital 3-4 days, at present on many antibiotics and a drainage tube in his stomach. Again Thanks. Wilma
