ONE HOMOEOPATH SAYS A WORD FOR SURGERY.
About two months ago our stomach began acting up; a pain there, continuous but not severe. Finally food could not be accommodated and even fluids refused to pass the pylorus. The X- ray told us of an ulcer the size of a half dollar, low down on the stomach wall. Continuous suction by a tube through the nose into the stomach kept it free of all fluids and gallons of intravenous liquid food kept one from thinning out too much for ten days.
The pylorus and duodenum were removed and the jejunum brought up and stitched to the stomach, after the ulcer had been cut out and the edges sewed together. The above we have from our surgeon as the patient was not conscious of even going to or coming from surgery.
Then days of intravenous feeding and suction to keep the stomach free of fluid, while healing went on. I will ever be sympathetic toward a bull with a ring in his nose. Try that nose suction through the nose sometime, for a day!.
In a few days feeding by mouth, an ounce of milk each hour. The next day two ounces. Yesterday cream of wheat and today a soft boiled egg with buttered toast to be thoroughly masticated. And oddly enough vigorous exercise is asked for by our M.D., right after the operation and on through. He says, “Those exerting themselves most get well quickest.” Now all is on the up and up.
‘Til the X-ray we were under fair homoeopathic prescribing, our own, with an occasional powder from one of our masters.
What of all this? Had homoeopathy failed? We know from the many, many surgical cases brought back from grave situations, to health through homoeopathic prescribing, that it was I who failed. Proper handling would have brought cure. We humans are still short of doing 100% in our work.
Homoeopathy is a full time job and soon we hope to be back working over the fine literature bequeathed us by Hahnemann and our other masters.
