Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello I'm Dr Chip
Is he still having the intense abdominal pain?
While this might be a viral gastroenteritis that will run its course in a few days I'm very concerned about the abdominal pain since this may be appendicitis
And the fact that he isn't able to hold anything down means he'll get dehydrated soon
So basically he needs to see a doctor now and I would start with an exam, blood work and a ct scan of the abdomen
Obviously if it's appendicitis he'll need an operation right away
Please let me know if you need any more information
He may also have a bacterial enteritis that will require antibiotics
Please let me know how it goes
