Injury with nail gun shot - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : hi
how can i help you?
User : ok, listen I don't have a lot of time to expalin, but me and my friend were buidling something out in my garage today. to cut a long story short, we were using a nail gun. he accidently shot himself in the side (right side, naval level) he is 14 and is fairly skinny (about 32 in) the nail went in about three inches. It wasn't very thick, but still went in fairly long. he's at the hospital, but since I'm not a family member they can't tell me his condition my questions are.
User : 1. is it likely he punctured his intestine?
User : 2. If it did......will he need surgery?
User : 3. If he does need surgery, how long will he be IN the hospital?

and get examined
and a possible surgery
User : how long would he be in the hospital?
