Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi ...Dr Hayat here..May I know your age and gender plz
Ok. . When did you have this covid?
Ok. How are you now ?
Ok. What are your symptoms now
Ok. Any difficulty in exertion or climbing stairs or walking in terms of shortness of breath ?
Any fever? Sputum production?
Ok. Did you have any scans ? Like ct scan of your chest
Have you got the report or films ?
Ok. At the moment your lungs are in the process of healing...You need a referral from your GP to the respiratory physician specifically for anti fibrosis therapy...mainly steroids for an extended duration..and there are some other drugs too that can be considered here...esp keeping in view your profession..
You will need prednisone but that needs a prescription..but before that you need to get a few blood tests and possibly a repeat ct scan too
Will have to see. Unfortunately it's difficult to say without me having physically seen you
Well it will need a CT ..can't be picked up without that I fear ..
So to summarise, I would go to the GP and request a referral to the respiratory physician and a CT SCAN..then take it from there..
Xray us too crude in picking up subtle things..
Is there anything else you need to ask ? As have to go to work tomorrow :)
Pleasure. Feel free to contact if you have any further queries or need to follow up..Best wishes
