    enduring pain

    "The careless doctor simply told me to endure pain."

    Can anyone tell me more idiomatic word or phrase to replace "endure" in the sentence above?

    Thanks

    He told me to put up with it.

    He told me to grin and bear it.

    'Uncaring' is better than 'careless' here.
