My 11 year old son started out yesterday with a tummy ache.

Customer Question

Hi, my 11 year old son started out yesterday with a tummy ache. He's had a loss of appetite. Today he says it hurts to walk long distances. His pain isn't extreme, he says it hurts around his belly button to his right side. He finally had a bowel movement today, no diarrhea earlier in the day. Hes not as active as he normally is. No fever. Is this just constipation or possibly his appendix. Thank you

Sorry he is sick. I posted an hour back but has not appeared. Yes he could be having mild appendix so pl. get him seen by pediatrician. This esp. if his pain is worse when he pushes right thigh back in extension.
