I've googled 'Lacerated Liver' and searched on eMedicine.
This is set in America, present day. My character is a fifty-ish male who has been shot, and his major problem is a lacerated liver. He needs to live, but preferrably for it to seem quite serious in the beginning.
I have two questions.
1. What would his treatment consist of? He's pretty lucky since he's practically on the grounds of a hospital when it happens.
2. What would his recovery involve? How long would he be off his feet? One of the sites mentioned anything up to six months.
