My 59yo Dad Has Had Low Grade Fever For The
Further testing required.
Hello and thank you for choosing "Ask a Doctor" service for your query sir.
Have seen your details and I appreciate your concerns.
There are many possibilities-
1)If patient is not responding to treatment of Gastroenteritis then a COVID 19 test should be done. At present COVID case are also presenting with Fever and stomach problems( not responding to regular treatment).
Second possibility is inflammatory bowel disease.
2)Ruling out possibility of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis is required. So if COVID pandemic is in control at your place then a colonoscopy could be done.
Was a CBC test done sir?
please revert back.
we're gonna get him tested tomorrow for covid in order to forestall that eventuality but me and my mom have been around him all the time and we show no symptom ... my mom being a heavy smoker i thought it would get to her if it was covid but we never know
the ultrasounds didnt show anything abnormal , could it still be a tumor or polypes ?
a cbc test was done , do i have a way to send u the results ? the amount of white blood cells showed was normal
currently he's taking spasfon , cefixime and an anti bloating medicine
do you think his case is serious doctor ? today he is coughing a little and had a XXXXXXX of 37.9c°
Hello and thanks for follow up my dear,
-Almost 60% people are having Asympyomatic infection of COVID.
-Keeping in view of today's circumstances my dear it's necessary that COVID should be ruled out.
-Yes of course ask the customer care service to attach the report or else mail them to me directly at YYYY@YYYY and address them to my name: Dr Ramesh Kumar
-Most of these conditions related to gut are usually not emergency conditions.
-As he has now started to cough get his SARS-COVID19- RT-PCR test get done today.
