Mild concussion

my son suffered a mild concussion while on a trip to New York with his Show Choir group for spring break. He fell on the ice while ice skating. He was taken to the hospital and they performed a CAT scan and the Dr. stated he had a mild concussion. He is now trying to get back home to Oklahoma and they are having trouble putting him on the plane because he is throwing up. His injury was on Thursday. Is there a reason tha he shouldn t fly? They have called me and said that he will be on another flight but I am really worried about him. He is only 13.

He can be safely shifted via plane to your place. Unless his medical condition is unstable there is no reason he should not fly.

Thanks for writing in.
I think your son needs immediate medical attention as continuous vomiting can be a sign of an increased intracranial pressure. This needs to be looked at on an emergency basis. Please tell them to take him to the ER immediately.
Hope this helps.
