I had an ENT exam and the specialist did not use gloves?

I had an ENT exam and the specialist did not use gloves. The tubing the second time she went up my nose was touched at the bottom by her hand at the light. I should have stopped her and am beating myself up. I am ocd and PANICKED ! and watched this happen but somehow trusted her as she is well respected. She had used hand sanitizer she claims prior when she came in but shook my hand afterwards having been at another doctors and registering my thumbprint on the check in but I did use hand sanitizer twice but was holding a plastic cup from the water cooler) and then did the procedure the second time having touched the tip of the scope with her fingers. She wrote back she will change her ways and seemed unconcerned for my health. The pcp is under the same system and told me “not to worry” but agreed to do the testing I want. What tests should I have? Should i wait to get symptoms? I again am not sure she even used sanitizer. I am asking the pcp to do an hiv and Mrsa test. What else major should I have her test for? Hep C? I was not vaccinated against Hep B. Please help. It has been 48 hours and I feel okay.

My father has been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer?

My father (age 56 yrs & weight 70 Kg) has been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, Stage 4 with primary tumour in his Left Upper Lobe and metastasis in Liver and Bone. The biopsy report has confirmed it to be adenocarcinoma.
He complained of wheezing and breathing difficulty and towards ascertaining the cause a X-ray was taken on 23 Feb 17 which showed massive pleural effusion in his left lungs. A series of tests followed with the ultimate result as NSCLC Stage 3B. It was categorised as Stage 3B as the pleural effusion was para-malignant and no metastases was noted in any other body part.
He was started with CCRT treatment which concluded on 05 May 17. During the treatment he was given daily dose of radiation therapy to his primary tumour site in his left upper lobe using IGRT (60 Gy/ 30 #/6 weeks) and weekly chemotherapy with paclitaxel (150 mg) & Carboplatin (300 mg) for 6 weeks. Despite the treatment, the cancer is advancing and has now spread to Liver and Bones as brought out in his latest PET CT report.
Lung tissue which was obtained during CT guided biopsy conducted in the month of Mar 17, before the CCRT treatment was started, has tested positive for EGFR mutation – “E746_A750del is detected in EXON 19 of EGFR gene”. His doctor has started my father on Erlotinib 150 mg OD since 26 Jun 17.
My father has developed Post Obstructive Pneumonia in his left lung and there is consolidation in his entire left lung. This is evident from a recent X-ray. He is having difficulty in breathing, takes short & fast breath, sweats a lot, feels cold, has irritation in his throat and gets tired very fast. He also has issue eating solid food and had greatly cut down his diet.
He was started on Oral antibiotic for a week, but did not respond to it. He is admitted in the hospital and is being injected with antibiotics through IVs and injections. His condition remains to be same with no much improvement. His SPO2 level is also low at 90-92%.
Can you suggest anything towards treatment of my father? What is the sequence of treatment that we should follow to ensure recovery of my father in case he does not respond to the antibiotic injections?

I suffer problems after taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)?

Hello Doctor,

Actually my problem begins first time i took SSRI with strong activity, they started to take effect just 10 minutes after its digestive absorption! the effects are summarized as a common physical reactions of the body instructed by the brain (compulsive crying, irresistible physical motivation and strong motive energy, emotional rush, backward memory and reminiscence I don’t exaggerate if I say until 3 years old !! also divagations and temporary serotoninergic syndrome)
After one month I noticed a very low activity in my neural process and a very poor productivity regarding my mathematical and logic skills, I stopped these drugs abruptly hence the new ordeal to be welcomed to!, a new stage of new gender of disabilities and withdrawal symptoms just worse than before! I was deeply touched to the point I forgot even the way to tie my choe cord !!! It took me six other months of infernal battling (yoga and meditation and jogging) to recatch my reason, but there is still a couple of unsolicited effects, I cite :
– Short term memory, It got totally damaged, this influenced my chaining of ideas, I can’t dive into my thoughts more than few steps, also my linking between facts has received a very important impact, that far I can’t link between cloudiness and rain,too sad !
– stuttering and terminology deficiency.
– Independence of caffeine after I was taking 7 cups / 24h at average.
– Intuition and sharp thinking, also selectivity is twisted I became more chaotic about selecting my decisions.
– Readiness of learning and acquiring new concepts.
– brain zaps and inner brain electrical shocks.
– Uncontrollable and disordered muscular behavior (especially my fingers), and casually muscular itching (I suspect this to be in direct relation).
– Dysthymia, apathy and attention deficit.
– Dry and sour mouth each morning.

I talked to a doctor ,he presaged all these aftermaths to my lack of adrenaline and chemical imbalance that followed my rupture in cold turkey style, in reference to this claims it induced a disorder in dopamine transmitter activity which subsisted after the break-up event.

My question: Should I take adrenaline reuptake meds to reorder my brain ? or should I revert to these drugs again and experience the same hellish correlative reactions until I withdraw naturally ?
– Also is there some placebo that treats chemical dysfunction in the brain ? if it is not ginkgo so what would be ?
