I work in radiology, I would definitely request a CT scan of the abdomen/pelvis with contrast this will check out the gastrointestinal tract as well as the upper abdominal organs. I have seen pts coming in with gallstones that have very similiar simptoms to these. Also you'll probably want to get some antibiotics for his fever.
