ENT question. I have acute sinusitus. today I got bactrumm,flagyll

This answer was rated:

ENT question. I have acute sinusitus. today I got bactrumm,flagyll and methylprenosolone. The ENT Dr did a thoat culture b/c teh mucous drips from my nose and accumulates in my throat . he cultured my throat and said he'd call me friday. I inquired as to why and I said, r u doing this in case u determine that u may have to change antibiotics and then he was extremely evasive and kept repeating that we will talk friday.
he knows I am very anxious about other issues in my life and it's truly unnerving that he wont tell me what he is doing?
what is he looking for?

any further questions?

Customer:

correction severe nor sever I dont know the bacteria involved,he took a culture which i asumed would reveal which bacteria it is . Why wouldnt he answer the ques I asked which is the call on friday , u might change antibiotics? he wouldnt answer.

Dr. P Jyoti :

dont get worried about that

Customer:

did he see something in my throat that could reveal something omninous?

Dr. P Jyoti :

no no, if he saw something in your throat, he would have advised tests like putting a scope down your throat

Dr. P Jyoti :

but since he only advised a culture, it means that there is nothing more in your throat than an infection

Dr. P Jyoti :

and he probably didnt answer only because he didnt know whether antibiotics would need to be changed
