Why are there so many people in the room?

Well, you want someone to help the doctor. That’s me.
And that’s the doctor.
And we have a student with us today.
Do you want her to leave?

I don’t care, I guess.

I just don’t want anyone to look at me.

Has the surgery started yet?

Just getting set up.

But it’s going to happen in this room?

Yes, it’s going to happen right now.

Sorry, sorry.

Don’t apologize.

This really hurts.

You have to breathe. Slow, deep breaths. Don’t bear down.
Remember, we’re not doing this to you,

We’re doing this for you.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
You all have been so nice, and
I really appreciate you doing this for me.

It’s alright, Maddie. You don’t need to apologize.

Ow, ow, ow.
I can’t believe this.

How do you feel?


Ahhhh, I can’t do this.

Besides embarrassed, what does your body feel?


Are we done yet?

You’re going to hear the suction soon.

The cramps may intensify now.

Oh my god.

Just another minute, we’re nearly done.

Ow, ow, ow.

What do you feel?

Twisting. Like something is twisting inside of me. 

Yes, that’s right. It’s just plastic.

Stop twisting your hips.


Okay, all done.
I know it doesn’t feel like this now, Maddie,
But you did great.
You’re going to be just fine.
