My son (3 yo)...

My son (3 yo) has vomited 4 Times in the last hour and a half. In between vomiting he seems fine and for a minute or two before throwing up he seems to be writhing around. The last vomit was yellow green. Is this an emergency situation?

Doctor's Assistant: How have your child's checkups gone? Is your child progressing steadily in height and weight?

Perfect. Hes 96% height and typically about 75% weight for his age

Mild to moderate general abdominal pain as far as I can tell, no family history, no fever, no blood/diaharrea

Hi... I am sorry to say this, but, green colored vomiting is a red flag sign as far as abdominal pain is concerned.

I suggest you take him to the nearest emergency room and get him evaluated.

They will check him up, let a physician palpate the abdomen and then an ultrasound scan might be required.

The possibilities could be -

1. Sub Acute intestinal obstruction.

2. Acute Appendicitis.

3. Mesenteric Adenitis

His growth parameters have been normal and hence I am not considering malrotation.

Please get back to me if there are any further concerns. I am happy to help anytime.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating today!

If the abdominal pain is only when I palpate his abdominal area is it the same as if he was saying he had it all the time? He seems completely fine otherwise - he’s not crying or anything and he hasn’t now thrown up in about an hour. I will take him if you think it is still an emergency but he does seem to be settling down to sleep.
