Mission: Mission 3 Ghost Station
Location: Sickbay


Marina made her way to Sickbay, she'd promised the doctor that she'd be back for regular check-ups in return for getting out of Sickbay early. Walking into Sickbay she offered a warm smile as she made her way over to Romaine. "Doctor, I'm back as I promised."

Doctor Romaine, Tara, was doing some work when she heard someone talking to her, "Oh, hi there." She turned around, "Good, you did come back. Usually, people tell me that and I never see them again. How are you feeling?"

“A little weak and tired still but I’ll be spending some time sitting down going over personnel files anyway.” Marina smiled warmly.

"Hmm, weak and tired." She observed Marina for a moment, "I would like to do another scan on you. It's just to make sure that I didn't miss anything."

Marina nodded. “By all means. I’d like to get back to full fitness the sooner the better.”

"Good." Tara motioned to her, "Right this way." She pointed to a biobed, "Climb up and relax." Tara grabbed her medical scanner.

Marina did as she was asked and made her way across to the biobed. Taking a seat she relaxed back into a reclined position and let the doctor do her work.

Tara started scanning her as she talked, "Have you experienced any other symptoms?" Tara had a concerned look on her face as she performed the scans.

“Mainly just fatigue and feeling weak, but I put that down to recovering from the Fever. I know Rigelian Fever can have long term side effects I’m hoping it’s not anything like that.”

"My original scans showed that your lymphatic system was compromised at the time. Unfortunately the long term effects hadn't presented itself yet."

Tara finished her scan, "Hmm, your platelet count is low and your slightly anemic." She pressed on her abdomen, "Looks like your spleen is also slightly enlarged. I don't think that I need to remove it though. Medication should take care of it."

Marina looked at Tara in surprise. “So I’ll need a course of medication or is there more to it than that?”

"I'm sure the meds will do the job. I'll be giving you something for your anemia too." She set her scanner to the side, "I need you to come in every morning for your meds. After a week, we'll see how you are doing."

Marina nodded. “I’ll do that, so what happens if this doesn’t improve?”

"I make it a rule not to speculate." She looked at her, "We will deal with that then." She sighed, "Okay, I don't usually do this. Worst scenario? We'd have to remove your spleen." She added, "But don't worry. It won't affect your Starfleet career."

Marina sighed. “Okay well let’s just hope that medication works first shall we?”

Tara nodded, "We shall. So, is there anything else?"

“No, I think that’s it” Marina offered a smile. “Thank you for all your help. I’m looking forward to getting on with my duties.”

"Good." She walked away for a moment and came back with a hypospray, "This shouldn't give you any side effects." She pressed it against her arm. The familiar hiss of the hypo was heard, "Come back tomorrow for your second dose. In case I'm not here, I'll leave word to expect you. If that's it, we're done here."

“Thank you Doctor” Marina smiled warmly as she hopped down off the biobed and headed on her way, hoping her medication doses would work and that surgery wouldn’t be needed.
