How’s your pain today?
It’s not bothering me. It’s my tummy that is uncomfortable. I feel like I need to poo but it won’t come out.
Okay, it’s good that your pain is better controlled. We’ll have to work on your poos today. What else is troubling you?
I’m just so tired. Don’t have energy to do anything. I can’t even get out of bed.
Yeah, they told me you hadn’t been out of bed for a while.
That’s all I want to do, to get better so I can get out of bed and walk around a bit.
Okay, we’ll keep on trying to make you more comfortable.
Should I go for the radiation treatment?
How did it go the last time you had it? Did it help your pain?
Yes it did. Do you think it will help me this time?
Maybe it would, if you’re feeling up to it you might as well get it. It might help your pain more.
Okay, thanks Doc.
You’re welcome. Do you have any questions?
When can I go home?
If you keep on improving like you have, maybe after your radiation treatments. Give you something to aim for.
Okay. You’ll remember to help me with my constipation right?
