All the stomach problems were not the appendix. I know, I held my breath too, hoping it was. But no, he is once again in pain constantly after eating. I personally would just not eat. But he insists on it. He really could lose a few (you saw the pictures of his stomach it is a little pudgy.) I know this might be a shocking discovery, but I think he ruined his stomach by using Red Bull as a meal during 4 years of school, and work. Can you even believe its nutritional value isn't very high?
