The doctor said it was about to burst and was even worse than he expected when he got to see it. It was twisted so my son didn’t feel the pain that would normally have had him screaming at that point, just a small ache and a feeling of being uncomfortable.
I’ve raised 3 boys and they get banged up or bang each other up constantly, I don’t go to the emergency room easily. A stomachache normally wouldn’t have been enough- we would have seen a doctor on Monday, but something about his face made me take it seriously. I could have just as easily not done it though because he didn’t want to go and said it wasn’t that bad, I got lucky that day.
