If he has a rupture bowel they will be operated.  The threat is that infection sets in and the rupture has coated the other organs.

It could possibly be life threatening.

Best of luck

Definitely an emergency!
My father died from that due to his doctor, an ER doctor not listening to me and a surgeon not operating until 2 hours after he was called.
