Quoting Ҿcɧơ:" Because apparently if I had an infection it would be very painful. I have pretty much no pain at all. "


not true. i had a bad infection and wasn't in any pain. I only had pain when they did a vaginal exam on me... go to the er. they can not diagnose you over the phone. plus this doesnt really sound like the flu.

Because I just picked up my script for an antibiotic. I have to eat and take it, then I'll go. I need to be sure to take this antibiotic.

Non-profit hospitals have to profit a certain amount of uncompensated care, ask about it if you get admitted.

I don't think you get the potential seriousness of this

Left over tissue can kill you
Meningitis can kill within hours

Don't wait, eat, and take a pill before going. Just go now and see what the docs at the ER think.

It could be nothing, but do you really wanna take that risk?

I would go to the ER, you can always sign up for medicaid, or some hospitals have charity care-where I work they do-or payment plan-get yourself in there pronto.

Because the doctor and nurse I spoke to are three hours away from me. Its Christmas Eve, all doctors offices are closed here. No one else would answer the phone.
And if she wants to help she needs to act concerned not bitchy. Its not going to encourage me to get help by bitching at me. Its just going to piss me off! f**king duh!!! I've got a headache and I don't want to be yapped at like that.



I just tried to see any doctor I could and everything is closed or packed and I'm not going to the ER. Those people are never able to do anything!!! And they make you pay and arm and a leg just to be told to go home and rest and take my Rx. So Thats just what I"m going to do.

If your tempature doesn't start going down within hours of starting the Rx the nurse put in the system for you, I'd go to ER. Your fever is pretty high. Better safe than sorry.
As for the antibiotics, I was given a two week supply after my abortion. it was called Doxycycline I think.
Best of luck.

I had leftover tissue and didn't find out until 3 weeks later. I just kept having pregnancy symptoms, no fever or anything. It takes a long ass time to get an infection from tissue. You probably got it from something else.

So after being observed for meningitis, having blood taken to see if I have an infection, and then a chest x-ray, the x-ray revealed that I have had "walking pneumonia" for weeks. That is what the pain in my chest has been which I have been thinking has been caused by anxiety, but in fact I have had pneumonia!!!!!
I have NO symptoms of pneumonia, and never really did besides the fever this morning, which was brought up because of my procedure, which caused my immune system to go down.
Soooo it was completely unrelated to the abortion. Everything is normal in that department. I am filling an Rx for a NEW antibiotic after Xmas for the pneumonia. Thanks for being concerned and watching.
I'll start feeling better soon now. I already do just by finding out what is wrong with me.

I'm glad you're okay. Sometimes just knowing what is wrong can make ya feel better. I'm the same way.

I hope you feel better fast
