I have a few additional questions for you:

  1. On a scale of 0 to 10, where would you rate the pain currently?
  2. On that same pain scale, what is the highest rating you would give your pain in the past 12 hours?
  3. Are you having any of the following? Fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation or blood in your stool?
