Customer Question
I had surgery on...

I had surgery on December 8th and have been nauseous with dizziness

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Went to urgent care and they gave me antibiotics because I developed a cold. No other meds.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take ambien at night. They also gave me cough meds with codine but threw up and haven’t taken any more. That was 4 days ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No allergies that I know of

Female 48. The doctor released my minor pectoral muscles. Urgent care assumed it was part of the cold. No investigation done by urgent care other than vitals and questions of symptoms.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
