Child fell on back. Body pain healed but has stomach pain and sleeping a lot. Advice?

My 9 year fell from about 2 or 3 feet up when doing a flip on the rings on her small swing set. She fell directly on her back. She cried a lot and complained of low back pain on her right side and hip pain. About 20 minutes later she had a stomach ache. She went to bed and slept over 12 hours. She stayed home from school the next day. The pain in her back and side went away in 2 days. It has been 5 days and she still has stomach pain. She went to gymnastics 2 days ago and did some jumping on a trampoline and other things so I thought she was O.K. But today, 5 days since the fall, she has a stomach ache again and is sleeping a lot. She is having regular bowl movements and urinating. She has not vomited. It is Sunday, but I plan to take her into the doctor tomorrow. Do you think the fall caused the stomach ache? Should I take her to the hospital?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
She might have suffered from from some sprain in her abdominal muscles.
Give her some paracetamol and avoid active sports for some day.
Give her some antiacid medications as well.
If the pain persists an abdominal ultrasound is warranted.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
