User :   Hi, whom am i speaking too?
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hello this is the person who had that stomach ache...
Doctor :   I remember you.
Doctor :   How are you feeling today?
User :   Well my stomach hasn't ached at all for the past couple days.
Doctor :   That's good.
User :   I have been eating thru work, eating fiber granola bars, hot dogs with no ketchup but with mustard, but today morning, i ate a spicy soup my mom made, and my stomach felt just fine, no ache at all...only ache was holding in my stool due to work.
Doctor :   You are progressing towards recovery.
Doctor :   That probably may be due to hardening of the stool.
Doctor :   Intestine have the ability to absorb water as the contents pass through it.
User :   Well for dinner, i want to eat the spicy soup again, is that okay? My mom made is fresh, with natural ingredients, so it's okay to eat right?
User :   Yes, and at work, i have been very thirsty lately, and whenever i got off work, i drank a lot of water, and i ate a banana yesterday night as well.
