The check-in form asked if I was injured or sick so I checked both.
When the nurse came in to check on my symptoms I, of course, had to make the head to toe joke. I almost didn’t have her check any of the ‘head’ stuff since I was feeling so much better today but my voice was like a preteen male, so that was kinda a tip-off to her. She swabbed for strep but I know it is going to come back negative.
I am now a complete fan of Zicam – it totally kicked this thing’s butt before it got any worse.
So the PA comes in and says she is going to give me an antibiotic for the head thing. I ask her if I should really have it because I am feeling better and (total TMI) all the fluid is clear. She thinks I should still take it. And, I am totally not going to do it. I don’t have an infection, I just have a stuffy nose.
So she sends me for an X-ray for my toe. This sounds weird, and I know an X-ray can obviously see through things, but I don’t think they took the right X-rays. The pain is on the bottom side of my toe and all the X-rays are shot from the top or side.
She said she can’t see a break but that I should follow up with a podiatrist in two days. I think I am going to see if I can do anything else before then. She also gave me a prescription for a pain pill. She says “It’s a narcotic so be careful with it”. Um… yeah… I’m going to be so careful with it that I’m not filling this prescription either!
Well – if that little trip was not worth a $30 co-pay, I don’t know what was.
So, what do you guys think?
