The one symptom of Covid that no one is talking about.
So, I have been super careful trying to avoid catching Covid. I wear my mask, social distance and wash my hands regularly. Although I have been careful. I ended up catching it.
The first few days, I felt like I just had a cold. After a few days, I started to get sicker. I had high fevers, coughing, no taste, no smell, sore throat, fatigue, weakness, body aches, no appetite, chills, vomiting, nausea, and explosive diarrhea. Yeah, you read that one right. I ended up having to wear adult diapers. Every time I coughed I would lose control of my bowels. And, I was coughing 70-80 times a day. I was so embarrassed. My blind wife was changing me every hour.
With so much diarrhea, I ended up getting very dehydrated and weak. After 3 days, I finally decided to call 911 for an ambulance. When they got there, I was so weak, I couldn’t stand. My pulse ox was 87. They had to use a special chair to get me downstairs.
I ended up getting admitted to the hospital for Covid pneumonia. My pulse ox was 85 standing up. My explosive diarrhea finally stopped. I am on oxygen and 2 antibiotics. My doctor told me that I do have severe lung damage and that if I catch covid again, I may not make it. I am confident that I will get out of the hospital in a week or two.
