In accord with his symptoms I gave him Nux Vomica and Condurango 4th, to be taken in alternation every two hours. Even after two days he noticed an improvement and when soon thereafter I added Graphites to his remedies, he felt exceedingly well. Graphites was intended to dissolve the scar tissue; at present he is obliged to assist his bowels somewhat by taking senna leaves, but continued treatment will make this unnecessary also.
