Default I finally got the Rona

I will limit this story to “just the facts”. Please remember this is just my singular situation and your mileage may vary.

I am fully vaccinated (Moderna) since March of 2021, my son is too young.

On Aug 26, my son and I were exposed to COVID positive people.
I immediately began taking hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin (tablets) along with zinc, Vitamin D, etc…

We began testing 3 days post exposure and all were negative for 6 days.
On Thursday Sept 2, my son awoke with nausea and aches. I tested him 2x and he was positive. He had a low grade fever for 1 day with minimal appetite for 1 day and was back to normal by Friday afternoon (36 hours).

I continued on my regiment of Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin but began to have some nasal congestion and mild abdominal cramps on Friday night. I tested positive at home on Saturday and confirmed via a doctor on Saturday afternoon.

I had moderate fever (100.9) with some cough and “tightness” in my chest. Nasal congestion and normal fever aches and pains.

I started taking Azithromycin antibiotics as a preventative for lung infections.

I arranged for the monoclonal antibody infusion at 8:00 the next morning and received it yesterday according to schedule.

I began to feel better late yesterday and as of this morning I am fever free with no congestion or cough. I will monitor my symptoms as the days progress.

I believe I was as proactive as possible and took an aggressive treatment protocol as quickly as possible despite being of good health and fully vaccinated.

You attacked the rona better than the mass amount of incompetent dr's who prescribe the go home till you feel better or need the er method. Borderline criminal.

Any doctor that does this should have their licenses pulled and never be able to practice medicine again. They can treat you, but choose not too which is total BS!!

Good to see you caught it early, were prepared to treat it and have gotten after it with treatments that help keep the effects to a minimum... It's beyond imaginable that people are still getting sent home to get sicker before treatments are being offered/prescribed. As has already been mentioned, doctors should lose their licenses....

One other item of note related to the antibody infusion. Their requirements or standards appear to be a bit fluid. If you call and get told you need a doctor referral, you might try and call back and see if you can get another person to take you without a referral.

Persistence is your friend on this process.

Sounds like an excellent approach and outcome. How are you doing the testing at home and so frequent/quick? Seems like it takes 2-3 days to get a test around here, which puts you behind on getting the infusion.

Grocery stores and CVS/Walgreens now sell rapid antigen tests. $25 for a 2 pack. I bought enough to cover us for a few rounds.

Great getting after it from the start !! As others have stated it's insane that dr's don't get after it immediately instead of waiting till you can't breathe and go to hospital. When I had it started meds first day and had symptoms 1 1/2 days other than a nagging dry cough for a week.

When you guys started taking Ivermectin. What was the dosage and how often. A couple of months ago, my sister was able to get me 2 boxes that contains 4 pills of 6mg each. I went searching on the web an apparently for my weight is 2 pills.

15 mg per day for a 180 lb man for 5 days was the post exposure dose

Good to hear you beat it fast. Rona dam near tried to kill me. Hardest time Iíve ever had being sick. Nothing like it and Iím a 43 year old gym nut. Make it a point to stay in good shape. Today is day 17 and Iím still not 100%. Getting there though. I wasnít vaccinated. But after seeing how much more mild the symptoms are for people vaccinated I will be getting the jab when Iím 100%. I never want to be that sick again. I thought I was a goner. Thank God for keeping me around a little longer.

I was able to get an appointment for tomorrow. Thanks for the info.

I’m hesitant to go though. My symptoms started Saturday and tested this morning and positive. I’m hesitant because I feel fine. Other than some congestion and a little cough I feel fine. I know they only have limited capacity and I hate to use up a spot if not needed. On the other hand it seems like a lot of people are fine the first week and then it’s the second week that’s it kicks there rear, at which point it’s too late to try to get in for the therapy.

Do y’all know of any downsides to getting the antibody infusion? I tried looking on google and of course it’s all positive but we all know google only lets you see what they want you to see.

Only you can make that choice. I can tell you it wasnít at full capacity when I went, so I donít think they are overloaded. Best of luck.

Tbhír Kevin pointed out that since the antigens are synthetic it might not allow our bodies to develop the full natural antigens. I could be saying this all wrong.

I did the treatment just to throw one more thing at it the virus.

Thanks for posting your experience and glad youíre getting over it.

I got over a week ago and completely agree with all the above comments about doctors incompetence. I had to form my own plan of treatment and be persistent.

Seems as though this is getting to the point that the question is not if, but when youíll get it.

Have a well informed plan in place beforehand. And work your plan.

I’m sitting in the Freeman coliseum parking lot as we speak. Wife tested positive yesterday and she’s inside getting the drip. This place is busy! We did same exact protocol as you. I’m the last one standing that hasn’t gotten it yet despite being exposed 30+ times via students in the last two weeks. I reckon my times coming.

My wife got it last Monday. She came out looking worse than she went in. Laid around for a couple hours after we got home and she's been feeling better ever since. My mom got it Saturday and she still feels bad. I think she waited too long to go.

She has mild symptoms like bad allergies. Weíve had numerous family members get the Rona and recently three others got the drip and all three responded favorably.

I haven’t personally heard of downside. We’ve administered a bunch of it though our ER. Some of our older staff that met criteria were comfortable enough to take it when they got rona.

Very, very few need the ICU admission. Obviously you haven't been there and know nothing of what they're doing.

Isn't that the truth. Have heard numerous stories of the same - refuse to prescribe meds that have been documented to work, tell them to stay home, and my daughter was told no need to quarantine my son-in-law in the house and keep away from him as "you'll all get it anyway". She ignored that advice, and so far, two weeks later, no else in the house has tested positive.

My old doc should have her license pulled! I had it in November and her treatment was to tell me to go to the ER! I did not and treated myself!

She 🔥!

Just FYI my wife’s GP wasn’t available this weekend to prescribe medication so she did the teledoc route and had a referral for the infusion and all the normal meds prescribed within 30 minutes. Just another option to consider.

I just got over it. Today is day 14. Did vitamins and took antibiotics and prednisone to keep lungs clear and free of infection and drank lots and lots of water. My FIL caught it the same day I did from another source. It nearly killed him. Put him in hospital for several days. I am not vaxxed but he is and also got the booster but is also imuno-compromised from his kidney transplant. Got the infusion last week and hes back home and getting around good thank God. Looks like hes completely free from it as well. Senses are coming back and we both have a slight dry cough leftover.
