Case I. Mrs. L, age 36, had been in bed with pelvic cellulitis. She apparently had been a sufferer, notwithstanding ample medical attention. There was much tumefaction of the abdomen and great tenderness of all the pelvic organs, and the tenderness extended to the abdominal tissues and viscera. There was enlargement of the uterus and ovaries with erosion of vaginal portion of the uterus and anterior wall of the vagina. Hot douches per vagina and hot hops constituted her only possible comfort, when her abdomen had cooled from the absence of the hops, pain became unbearable, so she lived and so she was dying. Every change to cold increased her suffering.
Her bowels were constipated, her menses came too soon and her feet were always cold and felt damp. The evidence of her suffering was ample. Her mental state was gloomy. The hop poultices and hot injections were discontinued and she was placed in warm clothing. Calc-c., 85 m, one dose, was given.
No more medicine was needed. She was able to work in four months and is now perfectly well. Three days after taking the medicine her menses came on with profuse flow and increase of pain; at the proper time the flow ceased and all the tenderness and previous suffering passed away.
