Our expert says:
A swollen tender abdomen needs urgent medical attention. If you leave it and you develop a perforated colon or abdominal sepsis, you are going to be off sick for much longer! I jokingly always ask my patients if their boss will put up a statue in the garden at work for you if you died because you were too scared to take sickleave :-)
Jokes aside, your health is much more important than your boss's feelings about your taking sickleave, or your work!
