hello would you like to chat on this?
hello i am an ENT specialist and can help you on this
what symptoms are you having now?
I have sever sinus headache, so swollen inside nasal cavity that mucous accumulates in my throat and I spit it out.
I cant answer the ques regarding rating your service b/c i dont have an answer yet.
thats right, you need to rate my service only after my answer
in this case, you need not worry
the doctor only wants to know the bacteria involved
and to change your antibiotic if necessary depending on the sensitivity report
there would not be any other reason at all, let me reassure you
you need to take the antibiotics as prescribed
and see your doctor after two days
if necessary he will change the antibiotics
dont worry, this must be a simple throat infection and getting treated in this way will give you relief

any further questions?
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.
dont get worried about that
did he see something in my throat that could reveal something omninous?
no no, if he saw something in your throat, he would have advised tests like putting a scope down your throat
but since he only advised a culture, it means that there is nothing more in your throat than an infection
and he probably didnt answer only because he didnt know whether antibiotics would need to be changed
I will rate your service but I wont know if u gave me the right advise until he calls me friday . He stuck the instument used to culture my throat , down my throat and something else deep into teh sinus cavity .
that was for examination only
dont worry, if he had seen something then he would have advised a biopsy not a culture
