Hi thanks for your question
your son was hit by a metallic rod on right lower abdomen and didn't complain of any pain.
I would suggest to get him examined by a physician and get ultra sound of his abdomen done to rule out internal bleeding.clinical examination and ultra sound will rule out internal bleeding.If internal bleeding is ruled out by these 2 means ,then there is no need to go to E R.
Hope this answer your question
