So specifically, what about the stomach? What would be the dangers of a stab wound to the stomach, how long would recovery time be, and when could the person start eating again? I assume they'd have to be on IVs for a while.
This would be present-day England. The victim is an otherwise healthy young male, somewhere in his late twenties or early thirties. And I would never choose to have him injured there of my own free will; he isn't my character and he was stabbed there canonically, so I have no choice but to follow canon. ;)
Terms searched: many, many various versions of "recovery time for stomach wounds", "when can I eat after a stomach injury". Nothing helped. The posts here were the most useful information I found, but still not quite what I was going for.
