Day 4

January 28, 2014

13:05- I have not received any missed calls or voice messages regarding an update to medical testing or supplies from either work or Workman’s Comp.

13:43- Was phoned by Urgent Care to come in for a follow up visit. Went to website for more information, which indicates blood tests are needed for diagnosis, and chest xrays only indicate if a pulmonary form has spread to the lungs. http://www.cdc.gov/tb/publications/factsheets/general.htm

13:48-Arrived at Urgent Care Center and met with Dr. John Welsh. He reviewed the x-rays with me and told me no active TB could be seen in my lungs. He indicated that he was going to prescribe me Isoniazid, 300mg to take once a day for 9 months, he also said I should take vitamin B-6 with it, and I should follow up regularly with my Primary Care Physician. He told me, and filled out paperwork for my employer that I should return to work Feb. 4, 2014 with no restrictions.
