Met with an accident. Started stomach pain and got bruise on it. Required treatment?

Hi my brother in law has deep brusing in stomach from car accident four days ago. He went to hospital yesterday in lots of stomach pain and they gave pain killers but he just rang at 5.30 am to say he s in agony. They checked his urine , kidneys etc. and said all was fine. Is he likely to suffer this much pain or call an ambulance to go back to hospital? Thanks Tracy.

Hello Tracy
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, your brother in law met with an accident few days ago. As he has deep bruising in stomach, it is quite possible that there have been internal injuries to the spleen, pancreas, stomach etc. Without examining the patient and doing radiological scans, it would not be appropriate for us to comment on the type of injury. But, we would recommend you to get in touch with your Doctor as soon as possible and get him examined. We would also recommend you to get a CT and Ultrasound done to check for internal injuries. Hope this helps
