Sickbay - Cadet Seb Petrov's medical check-up

“Make it so, then”, Aaron said with a smile. I see he got a sense of humor. Guess we really need some at Sickbay. He launched the scan, and a few seconds later, all the medical data appeared on the screen. No particular changes with his medical record, he thought. He is in good health condition, but I’ve just seen him being uncomfortable with his legs. Let’s ask him.

The doctor then uploaded and updated the collected data on his Padd. “Alright, it’s over. Don’t stand up yet, just sit back on the bed. I’d like to ask you some questions before you leave.”

“That was quick, very good.” Taking the prompt from Aaron, Seb shuffled into an upright position before swinging his legs over the side of the bed. His face twinged slightly as his leg muscles tensed up again.

“Go right ahead, Aaron. I’m afraid my answers won’t be as interesting as what you’ve already seen in my records.” Seb still smiled, due to his long stay on Starbase Sierra, interrogations of a medical nature no longer phased him.

“Very well”, Aaron said. He checked the collected data on his Padd and said: “I saw that you had multiple old fractures on the legs, that have even left some severe sequela on your leg’s nerve’s system. Plus, I notice you were massaging your legs, and the biobed has registered if I’m correct…”

He searched through the recorded data until he found the one he was searching for: “It is. According to those data, you felt a little bit of pain while moving your legs. And your femoral muscles are quite tight, even at rest.”

I’ll keep an eye on it, Aaron thought. As my first patient, I have to succeed. Plus, the security department is a physically strict assignment. He then asks him: “I want to be sure before you begin to work: as I see, your old fractures don’t seem to be a big problem for you, but will you be able to stand for a long period of time, to run, jump? If not, it won’t be a problem at the moment, but I could help you to recover a part of your lost abilities if you lost some.”

Seb’s hands rested flat on his thighs as Aaron spoke, nodding along to the Doctor’s assessment. Bad day to have a flare-up, Seb.

“Very perceptive, or perhaps I wasn’t subtle enough. I umm… Assure you that I lead a very active life and shouldn’t have any issue with the day-to-day physical requirements of my role.” Seb smiled as he attempted to downplay his discomfort.

“Just a bit of muscle tightness, you’ll see on my records when I completed my course of Physiotherapy I was given a series of daily stretches to complete to avoid this issue. Unfortunately, I didn’t find the time this morning. Not the best excuse, I know.” He threw up his hands playfully in a mock-defensive gesture.

“But… It has been several years since that regimen was last amended. If you… Feel it’s worth your time, I’d be happy to hear any changes you could recommend.” Despite his dismissive tone, Seb was indeed curious of what Aaron might suggest. It’s been four years, perhaps I should get this seen to…
