My son got kicked in the back a week and a half ago, by another student accidentally. Since then he has complained everyday of back pain. He developed a very high fever and had no other symptoms except the back pain. So his doctor checked his urine and sure enough had blood in it. She thinks its definitely form the kick/trauma.
I'm pissed that I didn't even get a note from his teacher explaining what happened. Would'nt you be?

Not sure about all the details, but we usually only let parents know when a serious injury occurs, usually to the head or face. I know that this did end up being serious, be it may not have seemed that way when it happened if your son wasn't in extreme pain at the time. Hopefully everything will turn out fine!! I would simply let the school know that you would like to be notified of any and all injuries that occur at school.

Had the teacher told you the DAY it happened would you have taken your child to the doctor any sooner than you did?
I mean you found out about it THAT DAY. What would be different had the teacher told you THAT DAY as your son already did? Gym teachers see kids get knocked around every day. I don't think they didn't tell you to be evil, I think they may have legitimately thought it was a no big deal incident, and he would have been fine.
