Child has vomiting. Given Zofran. Something to worry about?

My son threw up a few times Saturday night, I took him to ER and got him zofran to help. He stopped the meds Sunday and was fine. He woke up last night and threw up again, so I gave him the zofran again. He just woke up saying ow and crying. He was rubbing his hip and when I changed his diaper and liffed his legs he screamed ow and started crying... Is this something I need to worry about or could it be growing pains?

Pediatrician 's  Response

You have not mentioned the age of your son.
For vomiting zofran will do.

Just gently press his tummy to see if it hurts some where.
If he cries or winces when you touch him, its better to have him seen by a Pediatrician.

If vomiting persists or it is yellow (bile stained) you must see your Pediatrician to get any surgical causes ruled out.

Growing pains will not cause such a severe pain that the child will wince.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your son a speedy recovery.
