ir expressions and jumps out of the examination room.

“Chika-kun, are you okay? Well, they have no ill will, so please look after them.
It's a strong beastman's instinct trying to seduce as soon as they find a preferred partner.”

“No, I should definitely refuse them, but it's embarrassing to say that I have a spouse…”

“Fufufu, it's okay.
Instead I'll use a magic spell to drive them away.”2

Mintz-san answers with a bewitching smile.

Fortunately, no one is badly hurt, and the examination proceeds smoothly.

I think I've become completely accustomed to dealing with quite a few patients and using healing techniques.

At that time, I suddenly start to think that the surroundings have become noisy when a new patient is brought in.

The patient is still around a boy's age, with cute cat ears on his head.

His parents (I wonder?) get close to him with a worried countenance, and the face of the boy lying on the examination table has a writhing expression, bending his body and cold sweat appearing on his forehead.

Mintz-san approaches to see the boy and interviews his parents.

“What happened?”

“He had a fever last night, and he had stomachache, so I gave him a medicine that works for stomachache, but the pain got worse…
He says the lower right hurts so much that he can't stand it.

“I see, I'll have a little medical examination.
I will touch your stomach a little, okay? Does it hurt here? Is it here? Here is more painful, isn't it?”

The boy manages to answer the questions while making a loud moan each time he is palpated.

After finishing the examination, Mintz-san distorts his face slightly thinking about it.

“I see, both of you come here for a moment.”

Mintz-san calls his parents to the back room.

“The condition of your child is not very good.
The lower right part of his abdomen seems to hurt the most, but there is a strong pain in the entire abdomen which is quite severe.
I have no choice but to try out medicine that increases both pain and body resistance.
Some people may get better in a few days…
But if there is bad luck…”

“What!? Do you mean he might die!?”

“As far as I can see, the condition of your son is quite bad.
I think it's better to be prepared to some extent.
I'm sorry.”

 

The boy's parents break down in tears, and Mintz-san lowers his head beside them with a sad expression.

Visceral diseases may not be able to be managed by medical technology in this world.

As a health care worker nothing is more painful than letting a patient die.

I'm not completely sure about it, but I decide to try one possibility.

I pull Mintz-san's clothes and lower my face close to his ear, whispering in a small voice.

“Mintz-san, can you please let me examine him? There's something I'd like to try.”

“Chika-kun? Is there anything you can do?”

“No, I'm not quite sure yet, but I can't leave it as it is.
If there is any chance, could you let me try it?”

Mintz-san seems to hesitate for a moment, but he quickly agrees.

“Okay, but don't overdo it, okay?”

“Yes, it's fine.”

I return to the office and head for the boy.

It seems that his parents are staring with an uneasy look, and I can feel their gazes from behind.

“What is he doing?”

“It's okay, he'll give him a more detailed examination.
He's an excellent healer, so you can rest assured.”

I call out to the boy to perform the medical examination.

There are various causes for stomach ache.

Since the abdominal pain in the centre of the abdomen causes noticeable pain in the right lower quadrant, appendicitis is the first thing that comes to my mind, but I can't abandon the possibility of intestinal inflammation.

“It'll hurt a little, but please be bear with it for a moment.”

The boy is placed on his back and I apply pressure to the appendix to perform a palpation.

“It hurts! It hurts!!!”

There is a clear, very strong tenderness.

This time, I press the entire abdomen slowly.

The whole abdominal wall is stiff like a board, and the muscular defense reflex is positive.

I quickly release the pressing hand.

“Ugh!”

The boy moans with a bitter face.

This also hurts.

The Blunberg's sign is also positive.

He's completely showing symptoms of peritoneal irritation.

The possibility of peritonitis caused by appendicitis is high.13

With a CT scan it is possible to make a reliable diagnosis, but I can't hope for something I don't have.

If there are such symptoms so far, it is highly likely that it is causing a perforation, so even if there is an antibacterial agent it will not be possible to completely cure it, originally it would be approached with surgery, but that can't be done in this world.

In other words, if this situation continues, the child will die with sepsis.

I had no choice but to bet on the remaining possibility.

“Mintz-san, I'm going to heal this child right now.”

Mintz-san stares at me with a surprised look, but he noddes his head.

“I'll cure you now, so can you just hold on a little? Tell me if you're in pain, okay?”

When I gently put my hand on the boy's abdomen and begin to cast off magical power, a large light wrappes around his abdomen.

I imagine the structure of the normal abdominal organs while casting magic.

From the duodenum to the jejunum, to the ileum, the cecum, the appendix, the ascending, the transverse, the descending colons, the peritoneum and the visceral peritoneum that enclose them, the parietal peritoneum, the endothelial cells in the capillaries that make up the peritoneum…
all the correct structures.22

Then, I think of a normal condition in my head that is neither inflamed nor perforated.

When the image becomes perfect, the light gradually fades and is sucked into the boy's body.

“How is it? Are you still in pain?”

“Ah…? It stopped hurting…? Amazing! My stomach doesn't hurt anywhere!”

The boy gets up on the examination table and curiously stares into his stomach.

It seems like I've winned this bet.

I must have been very nervous, for I lose the strength from my whole body and fall into the ground.

My body feels a little sluggish.

“Chika-kun! Are you okay?”

“Oh, it's okay.
It seems that I was under high tension…”

“What on earth…
What happened to my son?”

“Well, your son is okay now.
He's healed.
I'll tell you the details.
Paris! Let Chika-kun rest somewhere.”

I am sitting there without being able to move, so Paris-san holds me in his arms and takes me from there.

“Chika-kun, didn't we tell you not to be careless?”

“I'm sorry, but I couldn't think of any other way…”

“But that's amazing, it seems like a lie that he was suffering that much.
Can you tell me the details about that later?”

With a gentle smile, Paris-san sets me on a large sofa in the laboratory and quickly get back to Mintz-san.

But this definitely makes me confident about it.

Healing is truly almighty if you can perfectly image the functions and structures of the human body.1

In other words, it is fully possible to restore a missing arm or a dysfunctional foot to its original state.
