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 11 months 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
