The only scene in a hospital room is at the very end, when one of the astronauts and her husband are holding their new baby while watching a rocket launch on TV.

However, there is an intense, several minute long scene early in the movie when the main character is treating his own bloody wound.

The main character needs to remove metal from inside his body after the initial accident on Mars - this is obviously very painful, but absolutely necessary for him to survive.

Quite commonly throughout the movie the main character eats as he works or talks to himself. The sound is quite audible and definitely triggered my misophonia.

There is no body dysmorphia. I'm not sure why so many people answered yes. A character loses a lot of weight because he doesn't have access to enough food, but that's not what body dysmorphia is.
