I'm not sure about stones but I had my gallbladder removed in my 20'sNo pain while urinatingNo injuriesPain is continuous when he moves (he says it feels bruised but doesn't look bruised) if he's still it doesn't hurtNo vomiting no fever
Hello, thank you for getting back soon with the necessary information.From the clinical history and the answers you have given, I put forth these possibilities -1. Muscular spasmodic pain as the pain is continuous and it is aggravated with moment.2. Renal colic or spasmodic pain in the left kidney or ureter due to inflammation or stone. I would have put forth this as the first possibility if the pain had been intermittent along with vomiting.3. Mesenteric adenitis which is inflammation of lymph nodes in the abdomen.I suggest you take him to the nearest physician or Emergency Room. I feel it would be better if a doctor palpates his abdomen, on hands and gives you a clinical opinion.Hope this helps.

is it something where I need to take him to dr now or can it wait till normal business hours?

Hi...sorry, it is 11 AM here. So I had suggested like that.

It is not an emergency please.

As of now you can give him Ibuprofen and single dose and wait for the office hours please.

If you can get back to me with the current weight of your son, I will suggest you the appropriate dose right away.
