I have this awful instinct to panic whenever I see the Dr.'s number on caller id. I guess since I spoke to her assistant yesterday and she assured me that the lab would not have the results for two days. I was not expecting to be woken up to a call from the Dr. this morning, so I panicked....I can hardly remember what the Dr. said. other then she asked if I had a fever - which I have not. The Dr. said that with the meds she would be prescribing, it should clear up the infection within 2 or 3 days. After the call ended I realized...... I "yes'd" the Dr. - and now I have a million questions! I partly think I do this because I am trying to process the information... and secondly I should just don't say "wait, slow down I am not following".
I picked up the prescription this morning for Ciprofloxacin and a bottle of cranberry juice. I took the first dose at 9 am today (Jan 19th). I'm not thrilled at taking more medicine (not much choice) - and as usual was freaked out by the extra three sheets of paper the pharmacist added about warning signs and side effects. Can you believe this a 3 page flyer?!?
