“How are you, Martin?”
“I feel awful, Dr Lewis. The pain is dreadful. My whole body feels as if it has been trampled on.”
“I thought it was your lower back?”

“So, the increased dose of morphine hasn’t helped.”
“If anything, the pain is more severe. I can hardly move. You will have to give me something stronger.”

My whole body feels as if it has been trampled on.
