Thanks for posting this, and hope you recover quickly.
Get well soon!
I thought I might have had it in January. I had the usual 4/5 day flu, felt like poop. I also developed a non productive cough, that I had for a MONTH. Which is something I've never experienced before.
I did the antibodies test through Quest. It came back negative, then a friend in the medical profession told me that the Quest test, isn't the best, with a lot of false negatives. So, who knows?
The director of employee health from my wife’s hospital called her after the confirmed exposure. During the conversation the director said the rapid response test is only 45% accurate in positively identifying covid-19, and the deep nostril test is only 60% accurate which results in high numbers of false negatives.
I have no clue if that’s true, but I’d wager the director is privy to covid info not available to me.
Everything I read on it says that you start to feel better and think you are all set, and then bam, around day 8 to day 12 or so, it comes back with a vengeance and you cant breath and need hospitalization. Lets hope that is not the case for you guys!! Hope you pull through.
Were y’all offered any medicine for it , especially your wife since she is a nurse ?
X2. A must-have piece of equipment which your wife probably already has. I’d be checking that twice a day and looking for a drop off from your normal range.
OP, are y’all going to get any chest x rays? Wishing you a speedy recovery. Thanks so much for keeping us posted.
All the best.
Prayers sent for recovery.
Best wishes inbound
We’ve not been offered any meds nor have any been suggested.
As of now we have no intentions of getting chest x-rays. I had some noticeable shortness of breath which lasted a couple of mornings. My hasn't my had any respiratory concerns as of now.
Prayers for recovery, this thing is no joke.
I had my ass absolutely kicked by a flu-like thing in late february, exhaustion and deeeeep aches, but no cough or respiratory systems at all, other than even taking the stairs upstairs left me breathless. Two cycles of this crap, with a pretty good week in between.
At the time, the lack of cough meant nobody would even talk to me about testing. Based on our current understanding of COVID, I'm inclined to think I had it, but I haven't had an antibody test, and they don't seem real helpful regardless.
All I can say is that I was absolutely flat on my mattress for a straight week the second round, lost 20+ pounds over the course of that month.
I hope you're doing ok, take the dehydration issue really seriously?
Prayers and best wishes for you and your wife.
Dammit, that test cost me $119. I was so disappointed it was negative. Now I have false hope again.
How about a update Scott? How are you guys doing?
