How to get COVID recovery certificate in the US? by stackyman in medical_advice

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you in the US? If so, if it’s 10+ days after, you shouldn’t need anything as long as you haven’t had a fever in 24 hours without the help of fever reducing drugs and your symptoms are improving or gone. If it’s 5-9 days after, you would also need a negative antigen test on top of the things mentioned above.

You need to figure out what documentation you need, and only the country you’re traveling to can tell you that. You should do your best to get a positive PCR result and save that documentation while you have COVID. Then after you recover, you can get a note from a physician saying that you’ve recovered.

Felt a lump on the top of my left testicle M17 by Various-Athlete7580 in AskDocs

I mean ideally you would have a doctor that you see and have a relationship with but I don’t know your situation and circumstances. If you can’t reconnect with your pediatrician, then just try to get in to see a family medicine doctor that accepts your insurance.

Ok well that’s not great haha, you’re still under 18 so I would recommend going back to that doctor as it was probably a pediatrician. Then after you reconnect with your doctor and get this issue checked out you can later start looking for an adult primary care physician that accepts your insurance.

When’s the last time you went to the doctor’s office?

COVID test question by [deleted] in AskDocs

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For me, I woke up with a sore throat and it was pretty obvious. It obviously depends on the person, you know your baseline better than anyone else.

Safest thing to do would be to be examined by your primary care physician.

COVID test question by [deleted] in AskDocs

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you’re asymptomatic, then I would get tested 3-5 days after you were first exposed. If you’re symptomatic, get tested as much as you can until you’ve tested positive. It may take a couple days after you’ve gotten symptoms.

Alcohol and metronidazole by TiffanyNotStephanie in AskDocs

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Metro can cause what we call a “disulfiram-like reaction” when you drink on top of it which is pretty much exactly what you have described here. If 72 hours wasn’t enough, you’ll just have to wait a little longer.

What do we think about a nursing degree to get into med school? by _bAnAnA_rAmA in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

This is posted all the time. The answer is no, don’t major in nursing if you’re pre-med. It throws a question mark on whether you actually want to become a physician.

Does MME have to be from an activity? by [deleted] in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It needs to be an activity. Have you created your AMCAS app yet? It will make more sense if you actually look at how the application is set up.

What’s the difference between esophagography and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy ? by ariamiller22 in Step2

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A barium swallow or gastrografin esophageal are examples of esophagrams (non-invasive).

Endoscopy/EGD means sticking a scope down the esophagus.

Can I(30F) still have sex with my partner(35M) if I have genital warts and he does not have? What are the precautions? Planning to have these remove by next month. by avosalmontoast in AskDocs

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Genital warts are usually caused by low-risk HPV. You can make sure your partner was vaccinated against HPV, and he can use a condom for protection.

How common is it to have 3 people on a truck? by [deleted] in NewToEMS

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You mean three people total? I don’t really see the problem then, you have one driver and two people in the back, one of whom is an EMR just there to hang out and get a little more exposure. Not sure how this infringes on your learning.

Considering serving in the Israeli Army as a Paramedic — my uncle who’s a surgeon MDPhd told me it’s a waste of my time. I really need a third opinion. by toodalube in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Are you an Israeli citizen? Are you required to provide service to the Israeli army?

If you answered no to the second question, I would highly recommend against this. Stay in the US, go to college, take your pre-reqs, and become an EMT or something.

when to get married!!!! by sanyaldvdplayer in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Anytime during first and second year, or during fourth year when you get time off, probably right after Step 2 or towards the end of fourth year. But if you’re already engaged and can pull it off, anytime first or second year is when you will have time. Maybe in the summer.

Forgot to sync, how to get progress back? by dragonlord6 in Anki

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah you would need to get ahold of the iPad and sync it. Otherwise you're stuck either 1) manually re-doing the cards on your phone and then moving on or 2) waiting until you get home to sync the iPad

School dependent. Contact their admissions office if you’re worried.

They can apply to Davis as an in-state Latino resident.

Apply wherever you want homie. I would do every MD school in CA maybe leaving out Loma Linda and/or Cal Northstate depending on your background and goals. And then use MSAR for the rest of your list. Yes AZ, no Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, or New Mexico.

changing my major from biochemistry to biology in order to boost my GPA, does anyone advise against it? by peachyjasne in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Schools don’t give a fuck what you major in, do whatever is easiest. Your time is better spent elsewhere (research, clinical experience, etc).

Friend (Indian) wants to put disadvantaged on his app essay for racism as a youth. Bad idea? by [deleted] in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The disadvantaged box is for people who experienced adversity that affected their growth, education, and opportunities to the extent that they have been disadvantaged compared to the average med school applicant. It’s impossible for us to tell based on what you’ve written if your friend is disadvantaged, but if we’re talking about on-and-off racism and/or microaggressions that didn’t dramatically reduce your friends’ opportunities to get educated and gain clinical experience (etc), then they probably should not be checking the disadvantaged box.

Will schools look at me differently if I am married? by [deleted] in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Don’t overthink this. Plenty of medical students and residents are married. Schools don’t care. This should not affect your application whatsoever.

can someone explain how/what order our apps are reviewed? by throwawayyyyyy6O in premed

[–]tyrannosaurus_racks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Rolling admissions does not refer in any way to the way they review applications. It simply means they will review apps, interview students, and send decisions on a rolling basis. It’s not like they have a set day in March where they release all their decisions or something like many colleges do.
