Hi, My son was taken to the ER for abdominal

Hi, My son was taken to the ER for abdominal pains. Blood and urine results were fine. Dr. said my son had "pebbles" on his appendix, and was in the early stages of appendicitis but couldn't treat him since there is no infection. Is this common procedure? Do we just have to wait until he's in MORE pain before he can be treated?

My 7 year old son has been sick Sunday. He vomited once on Sunday and since has been running a fever. He felt really warm earlier, so I gave him some Ibuprofen. 45 minutes later he still felt very warm. I took his temperature and it was 104.3 after the Ibuprofen. I gave him some Tylenol and his temperature is still 102.6. He has had no appetite and has been complaining that his eye hurts. Should he be taken to the ER?
