Hey y'all ok i have a little problem...
i got pus on my tonsils a few weeks ago, went to the infirmary and took amoxicillin and it went away, no big deal. well it came back and i went the the aftercare place by my house and they did a culture and said i had strep. they gave me 2 shots and i got my note to miss clincials last week and my teacher was ok with it. she said that if i miss another clinical that i have to withdraw b/c there is only one makeup clinical day at the end of the semester.
well i went to the ent on thurs. and he said let me check you for mono b/c your lymph's and throat still look pretty bad for getting 2 shots on tues. i'm like okkkk...go get blood work and sure enough he calls me friday and tells me i have mono, i'm about a week and a half into it. well he gave me some med. and i started yesterday, it's like 6 pills a day, it's crazy!
so i have to tell my teacher i have it. i feel fine i just get tired a lot and my tonsils look beautiful now. the dr. said i'm not contagious any more and people only can get it if they get in touch with my salvia. but he said it was kinda ify about the surgery unit that we are on.
do y'all think it would be ok if i wore a mask during my clinical?? i mean i'm ok just have about a week and a half left or so but i know it's a huge deal for pts. to get it and i was just wondering if y'all think a mask and gloves would be ok with my teacher, ya think?? im so scared that she's going to say i can't go at all and i'll have to withdraw and i CAN'T do that! school has been my life for the past 4 years and I don't know what i would do, i just can't i worked too hard.
i guess i'm jsut asking y'all opinion on if it's ok to use just a mask and gloves and i can still do my clinical? give me opinions please!! i've been like freakin all weekend!
