Question: child complains of stomach and back pain several hours after a fall on an inflatable slide
Answered by Dr. Sadiq Mughal 3 hours later
Thanks for writing to us.
Given your child's complaints, at the outset I Hope all vitals of your child are normal. This means that his blood pressure, pulse rate and temperature are normal. Please confirm this by seeing a physician.
The most common abdominal injury, which occur after fall and can present after several hours is a splenic injury. But abdominal pain could also be due to minor trauma to abdominal wall and the pain in back could be due to muscle pull, minor abrasions.
A splenic injury needs urgent physician consultation and accordingly your child may need ultra sound abdomen to rule out splenic injury and injury to other abdominal organs. So at this stage, it would be best if you take him to the ER and get a basic ultrasound done so that we can be sure that we are not missing anything major.
Minor injuries to back and abdomen may need only analgesic anti inflammatory drugs( pain killer).
Hope this answers your question.
Let me know if I can address any other concern.
I wish best of luck to your child
Dr Sadiq.

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
