Q.

Another comment re appendix

Sorry doc, just to add that my son said that his bum feels sore - he points to his coxycs, but he has not had a fall at all. That is the only symptom other than tenderness to the touch and pain when coughing or exertion.

Again this can be due to an inflamed appendix. Please take him to see a doctor.
