Throat infection recovery time

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection recovery time


Avatar n tn Was rechecked 2 weeks post surgery and underwent clean out procedure, told to stop antibiotics. Physician reported that recovery appeared to be normal at that time, even though I reported strong continuing nausea and fatigue. Going back in two weeks. Should I be concerned?
1570782 tn?1296689507 Hello and welcome! I havent had the surgery but have had the discussion with my NS about the expectation afterwards. I am awaiting a surgery date now. He said that it can take a long time and it is common to have up's and down's with recovery. So try to take it easy and give your body time to heal. It could take a long time as Selma said since we all heal differently.
Avatar m tn About two and a half weeks ago I had a Tonsillectomy/Septoplasty performed on my left nostril. My throat feels great, but my breathing has not improved in my left nostril. I believe that my stints were removed too early (just two days after the procedure). When they were originally taken out I could breathe extremely well, but shortly after my breathing became worse. The doctor said that this is "rebound swelling", however he also said that it should only last about a week.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a bacterial throat infection: including sore throat, fever, headache and body aches.....This was before x-mas, I was given Augmentin, which pretty much cleared it up, except my cough and congestion.... After x-mas The cough got worse and fevers, tongue ulcers and head and body aches came again, my Dr. said this time it's viral, so it would have run its coarse, it's been almost a month and still hasn't cleared up at all.
Avatar n tn After a severe infection like that, it is wise to listen to your body and your doctor. I get pneumonia frequently that lands me in the hospital and I have to tell you that it knocks me down for quite some time. I am still trying to recover from my last incident from around Christmas after spending 3 weeks in the hospital. Of course, I am already a bit on the deconditioned side (I live on a vent and am not very active due to muscle problems) so it does take awhile to get back on my feet.
Avatar n tn How long should it take before I begin to feel relief from an ear infection? I got the flu a week ago, have already gone through one prescription of Tamiflu for that. This past Sunday I woke up with severe pain in my throat and ear. The ER physician diagnosed me with tonsillitis and an ear infection. I have been on Amoxicillin since as well as Pramoxine and Ciprodex.
Avatar f tn To determine the cause, your doctor may perform a rapid strep test or throat swab culture. Monospot test will be positive for mono infection. Treatment will consist of antibiotics to cure the infection in case of bacterial infection. Antibiotics may be given as a single shot or taken 10 days by mouth. If the tonsillitis is caused by a virus, antibiotics won't work and your body will fight off the infection on its own.
Avatar f tn t regret it in a few months time. I have had just one sore throat in the 3 years since, previously I had one a month at least. Persevere and you will be fine.

6820152 tn?1385089722 Hi, looks like you have a throat infection and this can sometimes aggravate symptoms asthma. The symptoms described could be due to an infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar f tn But the last 3 times hes gotten very bad throat infections. 1st time he thought he just had a soar throat, really bad. 2nd time he was out for a week, he had to get a penicillin shot. And this last time he was standing up and almost passed out, fell over twice before going into see a doctor, again its a throat infection, really bad. we hadnt put 2 and 2 together until recently, but maybe that fact that he was giving me oral is making him sick... is this possible?
Avatar f tn First I want to thank you for the time you took reading my question. I am a 37 year old female with a very busy life with 4 kids. I have always had miagraines and I have always snored. We moved to a new area last August and I bEgan getting sever headaches. They would hurt more with movement like my head was going to explode. I went to the er and found out it was a severe sinus infection. It was so bad demerol did not touch it. So I began antibiotics.
Avatar m tn I'm a 24 year old male. For about the last year ive had a bit of a mystery going on with my throat, i started to notice my lymph nodes acting up, i could feel them, also my uvula was poking my tongue..VERY annoying and something ive dealt with on and off for a year, i had blood tests done, cultures ultra sounds of the nodes, nothing irregular found. Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...
Avatar f tn It acts as a natural antibiotics if you do have a throat infection. It has been doing wonders for me. Drink plenty of water so you body can flush out the toxins. Green Tea has also been found to shorten the recovery from the flu or cold. Vitamin C is another great immune booster. You can take more than the RDA recommends. In fact your body needs so much more. You can't really overdose on Vitamin C since it is a water soluble vitamin.
Avatar m tn i dont want to go to the doctor because i simply dont have time. i dont remember my throat getting this bad to the point that i cry. it hurts terribly to swallow and the swelling hurts to the touch. and i just coming down with something or could it be more serious. suggestions?
Avatar n tn In Oct 07 I noticed that I had put on weight which is very unusual for me (I am normally very lean) so I went to the doctor. Also had a very sore throat. My THS was 100 and he told me I had viral thyroidtis and that it may right itself with time. Below are my TSH, dose of Eltroxin and antibodies over the last 18 months. Date TSH Dose Antibodies Comment Oct 07 100 0 ??? Prescribed 50 Nov 07 7.8 50 ???
Avatar f tn you could have a sinus infection. The drainage will give you a sore throat. I have been getting a sore throat off and on for the past 4 months. Been sick twice and still sick.
Avatar m tn The presenting symptoms are fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, rash sore throat etc. Recovery takes place in 4 - 6 weeks without medication. Epstein Barr virus can cause symptoms of infectious mononucleosis like fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands. There is no specific treatment for infectious mononucleosis and few doctors may recommend a 5-day course of steroids to control the swelling of the throat and tonsils.
Avatar f tn My question is about recovery time. Those of you who know me know that I had a tumor removed and a total hysterectomy with "all-clear" for cancer two weeks ago tomorrow. You all have figured out I'm not a very patient person when it comes to myself, but, hey, it's been two weeks. The past couple of days I've been walking in the brisk Michigan air to get some color back in the cheeks(Darn Iron isn't working fast enough, either).
Avatar f tn I had a titanium plate installed with five screws following a compound fracture of the radius. What is the usual recovery time? I need to get back to work.
