Internal organs are burnt by stomach acid

Setting:
-- My character was stabbed by a sword. It was angled upwards, entering from where the left or right kidney is located and into the stomach (if it is unavoidable to hit the other organs, please ignore that). He's been left alone for two days to slowly die by his own internal organs getting burned. He didn't die, however, but he did receive a rather large damage to his innards (stomach acid isn't strong-- around 1 or 2 pH-- but anything above 0 is still harmful if it doesn't belong in that place).

My questions is, what happens to the following organs after absorbing/soaking in gastric acid?

  • Stomach (outer barrier)
  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Pancreas
[If there are any other organs I am missing that will also be affected, please add on.]

Or better yet, what happens to the body?


Research:
[Mainly used Google, Wiki, Yahoo and Ask]
-- Kidneys: I found that a human can live with one kidney, so the kidney that got stabbed will be taken out
-- Liver: I tried 'Small Liver' and words/terms related to it, but the engine shows me results related to liver cancer/disease/failure-- most of which are caused by alcohol and other causes.
-- Pancreas: Can be removed and replace by insulin or a transplant
