Hard hit to stomach, given tylenol and an ice pack

Hi, my 6 yr old son was on the riding lawnmower with my dad. They took a sharp turn and they both fell off. My dad weighs 270pnds and landed on my son. He says his stomach hurts. He was complaining it hurt bad but after 45mins he says it doesn t hurt that much. I had him jump up and down and he said it hurt a little. He s now acting ok, says it hurts slightly. Is there anything i should watch for with his stomach? Just want to be careful. I will take him to the ER if he seems to hurt worse. He said his lower stomach around the belly button hurts. Gave him tylenol and an ice pack . Just want to know what to look for that he d need to go to the ER. Thanks

you should look for his pulse regularly, every 3-4 hourly, if it is rising u should consult ER
u should also look for abdominal distension , abdominal tenderness by touching his abdomen gently in lying down position, also look for blood in urine, stool, and vomitus if any

Radiologist Dr. Gaganjit Khurana's  Response
Welcome to HCM,
You should look for increase in severity of pain , abdominal distension , nausea , vomiting , blood in stools . If the pain is persistent and severe then you should take him to the ER right away and he may need investigations like a CT scan to look at the abdominal organs for injury .
Regards .
