I was recently called up to the telephone by a physician of the other school, an obstetrician, saying his patient has been confined two weeks ago and that she had since then suffered from a paralysis of the bladder; that everything had been done at the hospital but to no avail; and that now she had to be catheterized every few hours. He explained that although I did not know his patient she was a believer in homoeopathy and that he himself would be grateful if anything could be done.
I found the patient in considerable distress both from the paralyzed bladder and completely inactive rectum, and from a highly nervous state, because of the drugs that had been administered, and from the frequent passing of the catheter. There were no other local conditions and there had been no complications to account for the disfunctioning bladder.
Causticum 45M. In six hours, the patient passed a few ounces of urine and later considerably more. The next day she was urinating normally and in normal quantities. In about a week there was some return of sluggishness, when Causticum 45M. was repeated, followed by a most satisfactory recovery.
I may add that the patients milk, which had been so scanty that it had to be supplanted by a bottle, was now, after the remedy, abundant, and that she is able, with full breasts, to nurse her baby. NEW YORK,N.Y.
