No pain with urination, no blood in urine. He has passed gas. Abdomen is tender to touch.

He is 24
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Following are the possibilities of the diagnosis;

1) Kidney stone passing through ureter to bladder.

2) Meckel's diverticulitis.

3) Intestinal infection.

An X-ray abdomen, ultrasound, CT scan with blood and urine work up are necessary for the evaluation.

Just keep him on liquid diet.

Mylanta may help.

Advil can be taken for the pain.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
