Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.

If antibiotics don't: help or work, and the pain increases, fever, and other factors get worse, he may need a surgery to prevent against a ruptured gall bladder that can kill a person through spreading infection (peritonitis, or sepsis!) It is nothing to take lightly, and he needs to be monitored closely now for follow up. So, hope he does well with the current meds. Not out of the woods yet. Good luck! ...Read more
