OFTEN I HAVE HAD TO REMIND PATIENTS, BEFORE A PAINFUL PROCEDURE, WHEN THEY WERE STILL PRETTY COMFORTABLE, THAT WE ARE PURPOSEFULLY CAUSING CONTROLLED PAIN NOW, IN ORDER TO AVOID EVEN BIGGER PAINS AND BIGGER PROBLEMS IN THEIR FUTURE…

routinely drawing blood for preventative testing.

injecting an immunization in order to avoid becoming infected and infectious.

removing a kidney stone before it becomes too big to pass on its own.

removing a gall bladder, which had give the patient painful gall bladder attacks in the past, but the patient has had no further pains.

performing a bone marrow biopsy due to anemia, or a kidney biopsy for kidney failure, or a liver biopsy for cirrhosis, even when the patient had not experiencing significant symptoms yet.
