Hey guys, haven’t posted in a few days. Well I’m now at Day 11 and still dealing with some of this crap. My O2 is good, no fever, but the nagging chest pressure/heaviness is hanging on. I still have no appetite and can’t sleep even tho I’m exhausted. Standing outside soaking up some of the free vitamin D today feels great. My wife is on day 8 of her symptoms and Praise God, our 12 yr old daughter is very resilient and is fine. I’ve heard from a nurse friend that some drs our prescribing a steroid to help your body out with this? Praying that I’m nearing the end of this

Well Hell, this escalated quickly, talked to my dr and he thinks I should be feeling better than I am at day 11, I’m currently sitting in ER waiting to be seen, he wants a chest X-ray to rule out pneumonia. Said even with good O2, I can have pneumonia. Hoping for the best and maybe something that can be treated at home. O2 is 98 and no fever

So sorry you are still feeling so poorly. :( You have all my sympathy! When I had Covid back in early November, days 10-13 were actually the worst for me. I never did have a fever, ever, and my o2 was only 95-96 for about 10 hours at my lowest around day 10 - the rest of the time it was 97-99. But I really didn’t feel a ton better until day 15-16. We didn’t have health insurance at the time, so I never saw my doc (though we *almost* ended up in the ER with hubby when his o2 was 93-94 for a few hours on his day 8 - thankfully he recovered rapidly after that low.) I figured I was just pulling a mom/wife thing, and didn’t let myself get truly sick till after I knew my hubby (who got sick first) and kids were doing ok. But, I’ve heard from others who got sick that their worst days were more into the middle-end of week 2, too, so I do think it happens.

Thankfully, I consider myself fully recovered, though it took about 2 months to feel truly normal again, and I still have a tiny bit of lingering fatigue 4 months later. It was about the sickest I’ve ever been (I’m 50, with a couple pre existing conditions that increased my risks), so I count myself lucky to have recovered so relatively easily. Here’s hoping you do at least that well! Wishing you a full and speedy recovery!

Sir this is wendy's. In all seriousness you should probably ask your doctor.
Well dr is recommending it, says without it he thinks I’m at about 5% chance of being admitted before recovering and if I get it he thinks my chance is about 1% of being admitted. X-rays and labs came back good

98 O2 is great! I didn't turn the corner til late on day 11. Unlike you, I still had fever til then and O2 was averaging 96-97 then. Listen to the doc. Hope you improve soon!
