If it has been two months since your last exposure and blood tests are now showing a normal pattern in full blood count etc then you do not need more specifc carbon monoxide treatment but instead symptomatic treatment of your problems.
Have you had stool samples analysed regarding the diarrhea?
only test was 1 carboxyhemoglobin, 2 days after last exposure, negative. what about PvO2 test, no one offerred that. I was told there was no test and no residule effects is this true?
If there was any doubt about your current respiratory status then we would do an arterial blood gas, which is a 'snapshot' of current oxygen, carbon dioxide, pH and bicarb, so if your oxygenation was low then your doctor can then consider acute management to improve hypoxia.
PvO2 is only done in our hospital if an arterial blood gas failed to be obtained.
Blood tests looking at your hemoglobin give a longer term picture of your blood's ability to oxygenate your tissues.
If the carboxyhaemoglobin was negative then you can put the carbon monoxide issue to one side and look at continuing your recovery.
