    Please edit the sence; it sounds awkward

    The pain nature is similar to that in the past when the patient was attacked by acute hepatitis, which led to his being multiple-hospitalized.


    The parts in bold sound especially awkward to me.

    Edit it please.

    Yes, I agree and not only the parts in bold. I would restate as, "The type of pain experienced was similar to that which the patient experienced when he suffered an acute attack of hepatitis, followed by a period of hospitalization".
