Thank you for your query.

As you mention that your child is fine now after the vomitings and abdominal pain but weak, it is very common to see such a situation. You need to ensure that he has a good balanced diet which is easily digested as he is recovering from an abdominal infection. Gradually come to a normal diet.

I presume your son lost blood following the injury he sustained during the fall from the stairs. This blood lost should cause you to worry so much. Just ensure that he has plenty of green leafy vegetables and if you are non-vegetarian then good portions of non-vegetarian food once his intestinal infection is well under control. You can discuss with your doctor and start an iron preparation.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Hello I have gone through your complaints. There are no danger signs like vomiting , headache and bleeding through any other part immediately after fall from stairs. Loss of appetite and abdominal pain can be due to any pain killers that you are using or any injury occurred on abdomen while during fall. There is no need to worry about. All injuries are not associated with blood loss. If your child appears to be pale or fairer when compared to the state before his fall then take the opinion of your doctor.
Thank you. Good day

Pain abdomen and vomiting may be related to injury or a total different entity. As your doctor has examined the child, he must has ruled out any abdominal injury or head injury. Now he is asymptomatic so no need to worry.
Give him nutritious and easily digestible diet ( low fat and spices). That will help in betterment of child.

Hello dear...
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for your query
To compensate for the loss of blood by the fall, you can give him foods rich in iron (like green leafy vegetables) & Vitamin C (like lemon, orange,etc.)
Other than give him a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, egg, milk, etc.
Also maintain adequate hydration & avoid junk foods.
Wishing your son a good health.
Thanks & take care
